It is important that you take enough precautions to ease your kid’s bedtime. If you’re a parent, you know the nocturnal challenge: to get your kids to go to bed -- and stay there. It’s not easy, but it’s one of the most important things you can do for them.
There are no hard-and-fast rules for bedtime, and every child is diverse. What's important is to build a routine that works for your family -- and to stick with it. Here we have some tips that will help to make bedtime smooth for your kid.
>Make sleep a family priority: Prepare a regular go-to-bed and wake-up times for the entire family and be sure to track them -- even on weekends. You can tell that children are getting enough sleep when they fall asleep within 15 to 30 minutes of going to bed.
>Deal with sleep troubles: Signs of sleep brawls include trouble falling asleep, waking up at night, snoring, stalling and resisting going to bed. You might notice problems in daytime behavior, as well. If your child seems overtired, sleepy, or cranky during the day, consult a doctor and fix it to smooth his/her bedtime.
>Let Your Child Wind Down: Children can't go right from the activity of the day into sleep. They needs a transition to relax and settle down. There should be no vigorous activity between a half hour and an hour before bedtime to have a smooth bedtime for your kid.
Keep the above tips in mind and help your kid to get the best bedtime.
