Loads of our followers have asked us for our bedtime rules over the years and as the children grow the rules change slightly each year.
Here is our updated version for a 4,7,11 and 12 year old.
Every household is different and what works for one family may not work for the next, but here is our tried and tested routine that works just perfect within our family…
This list is placed on the fridge for a few weeks in September until everybody gets back into a bedtime routine.
For us, we find that chill time is an essential addition to the routine to give the kids a chance to wind down and relax their busy minds.
Devices go into a basket at the top of the stairs.
This routine helps us as parents to regain a little sanity after a noisy and chaotic day within a large family.
Like I said, this is what works for us.
I’d love to hear what works for you too.
