Bedtime rules

How strict are you with bedtime? We run a pretty tight ship at home, but whenever we travel we let the rules slide and the kids stay up a little later. Right now we are visiting my parents and so bedtime is almost always an hour or more later than normal.

Do you let your kids stay up later for special occasions, or is bedtime a firm time?

    Bed time is pretty firm. But we don't really go anywhere anyhow. The 4 th of July we will let him stay up later if he can make it that long but normally by 8 he is in bed and by 8:30 he's out.

      We have older and younger children so we have become somewhat more lax at the children have got older. Yes there are occasions where bedtime is later than usual. It all depends on what is going on.
