Something I have battled with my kids is their bed time. I work odd hours and go to bed and get up at different times of the day a lot. It is hard for me to have a set schedule with this and my kids have struggled with my odd hours in an adverse way.

We usually start getting them down at 8, but they toss and turn and fight us even though my wife and I literally put our foot down. It's always an excuse which is funny because I used the same excuses on my parents when I was growing up.

It's not normal but sometimes they push us late and I can't stand it when that happens.

When I am ready for bed, it is on. I am usually exhausted by the time I hit the hay and having added issues is something I am not a fan of.

Do you have kids? What is your set bed time for them? Do they listen?
