Adolescents whose parents set earlier bedtimes are significantly less likely to suffer from depression or have suicidal thoughts compared to youngsters who hit the sack later, new research indicates.

This had me thinking... are you strict about bedtimes with you kids?

Wow, interesting read.

Our kids go to bed anywhere from 7 to 8pm. The younger ones go to bed at 7, and sometimes my older DD too, because she needs the sleep. Sometimes she stays up with my older DS and we read a chapter or two together after the little ones have been tucked in. When we are out for the evening and don't get home late...ugh! A routine bedtime, the earlier the better, works best for us. We intend to keep it up as they get older, gradually moving the bedtime later.

Also, DH and I NEED bedtime. :o)


Thank you, Dedi, for Avery's great siggy!
