The only way to discover if this is an ok bed time is to try it. If she seems too tired in the morning or really exhausted when she comes home from school you may need to make it a bit earlier.

Children and teens need a lot of sleep (8-10 hours as an average) but it also depends on the indvidual child. Try it and see what works for her.
