I think 10.30 for a 15 year old would be fair. Though depends how early they have to get up for school next day.

My 9 year old gets sent to bed at 7.30pm on school nights with her younger siblings and apparently all her friends are allowed up much later - I too no nothing, so don't take my advice.

I used to always complain I was sent to bed too early, or my mates were still out playing footy when I had to come in, at 15 I guess about 10ish, but I think you should say 11.

Hmm.When I was 15, I knew what time my folks crashed out. Would fake a bed-time before this and then go out and do my thaaaang. Worked real good 'till the Kuwait constabulary busted my ass one day...... Pops beat the crap outta me aftertimes, bless him. Still, he did spring me from the joint first.

Hope this helps....

I've had the same conversation with our 15 year old too. His current lights out time on a school night is 10pm, (but he often stretches that out by taking 15 mins to clean his teeth ), and around 11pm on a non-school night.

Your old, you should be dead!

Seriously though I could pretty much do whatever I wanted when I was 15. Stayed up as late as I wanted to and no one even asked where I had been if I stumbled home drunk. Let me serve as a reminder of why you need rules, or your son to could end up wasting his life studying at university . Seriously you can do as you want as long as your willing to suffer the consequences, try going to bed at 4am and getting up at 7am for a few weeks and suddenly you realise why humans need sleep patterns . Mind you I don't have children so...

he thinks 11 is normal...I say 10...so it's the battle of the hour every night...
he does go to bed every afternoon, since it's too hot to be outside anyway and uses that as an excuse (and the old EVERYBODY is allowed to stay out later)
I guess it's partly a selfish thing from me, longing for the days that the house was quiet after 7.00 pm...
