Here is how they get their kids to bed each night and keep them there!
What is the age range of your children?
How long does it take to put your kids to bed at night?
What does your bedtime routine consist of/look like on a regular night?
Baby steps. Take it one step at a time. Figure out what the most important boundary you want to establish is and do that until it is easy and habitual for you and your child. And remember, that in order to form a new bedtime habit, you as the parent need to also not make exceptions. When you make exceptions it tells the kiddo that if they grumble or complain you may just change your mind.
