Is your child going to bed at the right time?

I ran across this chart to give to parents at Kindergarten Round-Up! I have had so many conversations this year about when a Kinder (or any child) should go to bed each night. So, I thought I would share this with my Kinder Community so that we can understand that going to sleep earlier might not mean the child is actually sleeping enough (or too much!).
I have found that when I moved from Southern California to Oregon, I was NOT prepared for the extra long days in spring/summer or the extra long nights in fall/winter. My kids needed some serious adjustment. And, to be honest, so did I! I was used to putting them to bed at a certain time and have not always taken into account their ever increasing ages, nor their schedule. In California they woke up at 6am, but in Oregon it is 6:30-6:45am. Well, that means they can stay up a little later. And, let's be honest, this is my kids' dream come true!!
