According to WebMD's general sleep guidelines, children ages 7 through 12 should sleep anywhere between 10 to 11 hours per day.[1]

The new school year starts tomorrow, yet a lot of children in my neighborhood are out and about past 10 p.m. If those children goes to bed at 10:30 p.m., they'll only have slept for 8 hours if they wake up at 6:30 a.m.
