Look up Bedtime in
Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

A bedtime is a popular parenting tradition in the West that involves, to a greater or lesser extent, rituals made to help children feel more secure [1], and become accustomed to a comparatively more rigid schedule of sleep than they would sometimes prefer. It may involve stories, songs, nursery rhymes, and/or methods of coaxing the children into changing into their pajamas.

In boarding schools and on trips or holidays that involve young people, the equivalent of bedtime is lights-out.

Sometimes the term is used to mean simply "time for bed," similar to curfew.
