Go to Sleep Already! 9 Tips to Get Your Kids to Sleep Fast
I’m convinced whoever invented Daylight saving time didn’t have parents in mind. It’s every parent’s nightmare, wreaking havoc on routines and throwing off everyone’s circadian rhythm. While there’s really nothing to be said or done to actually change Daylight saving time, 9 Tips for Getting Your Kids to Sleep really does a nice job of outlining some simple, realistic tips for helping to get the kids to sleep at bedtime. The article highlights the following:
Establish a consistent bedtime routine
Unplug from electronics at least one hour before bed (I would personally recommend two hours)
Get rid of any monsters- help abolish your child’s fears
Let you kiddo have “the right” snack- turns out the type of snack eaten can really affect your kiddo’s sleep
Let young kids (but not infants) sleep with a comfort object
Set and enforce a consistent bedtime
Create a sleep friendly environment in your child’s bedroom
Use relaxation skills
Try some herbal teas or aromatherapy
Good luck and sleep well!
