I'm ten and I go 2bed at 8 o clock every day. My natural sleep time is 10o'Clock. I have nagged my parents but they won't change their minds whatsoever. Its very annoying as everyone at school go at, at least 9o clock every Nite. I get really depressed over this

Get off your parents computer and find something constructive to do.

If you want something changed in your house, maturely present your reasons. If you're told no, then the answer is no.

Just so you know...my kids didn't start going to bed after 9 pm until they were in middle school, and you're not that age yet.

Also, this is a parenting website. There are mature topics discussed on the site that are not appropriate for you. Talk to your parents about finding a safe teen forum to post questions. This is not the place.

Hi Chelsea. You also need to understand that your parents need some alone time to reconnect, and generally they can only do that when no one else is around. Which is after kids go to bed. Reading is probably your best solution for this, as previously suggested.

You need 10-11 hours of sleep a night. If you get up at 7, then 8 is a reasonable bedtime. If you aren't sleepy then lay in bed and read. What does your bedtime have to do with other kids' bedtimes?
