We usually only have to crack down when we first put them in a big kid bed. After that, they stay in bed. Sometimes they call us back, but if they do that too much they loose morning cartoons. I will admit that the twins have really complicated bedtime. Since we moved them out of cribs, they play in bed for a long time. We have thought about separating them but I think it would be traumatic.

We do bed really early in the school year. The younger 4 go to bed at 6. My 9 yr old goes to bed around 7:30 and my 15yr old about 9(she has early classes). In the summer its all over the place, depending on what we are doing. If we want to watch a movie until bedtime, we have them ready for bed before we turn it on.

We are pretty serious about bedtime. It is exhausting enough without the kids misbehaving. Plus, we can't afford babysitters, so that is our only alone time.
