I have a "curfew" question. Last night I allowed my almost 9 yr old son play outside until 6:15 p.m. with the kids in the aptmt complex because we are new to the neighborhood. Tonight the kids asked if he could play outside but he had homework to do. By the time homework and dinner was through, it was time for the evening routine. The kids were outside until dark. So my question is, what time do you let your kids get ready for bed? I was raised with a bedtime curfew(7 p.m. & then 8 when I was older). I know kids need to wind down & need a full night sleep. What do you think? Just because I'm a Mom doesn't mean I have all the answers. Am I too strict?
