My son (6) is a little more wild than my daughter (barely 5) so they have the same bedtime...
They both go to bed at 7:30pm on school nights and on weekends if we don't have to work we let them stay up according to their behavior, if they are good they can stay up, if they start getting whiny they go to bed.
We put Lucas to bed at midnight every night and he does pretty well with it! :)
When they were little like Lucas they went to bed later too so we could actually make it through the night :)
I like this approach.. love that you let them stay up later on the weekends :)
