For the Kids
As mentioned earlier, good sleep is critical for your child’s healthy growth. Therefore, you should start developing healthy sleeping habits in your child from an early age to avoid any serious problems developing later on. Here we have highlighted some tips that will help you in this journey:
- Develop a bedtime routine from an early age and stick to it! Try things like taking a bath, brushing teeth and reading stories.
- Take them to the bed at the same time every night and have them wake up at the same time every morning.
- Remove all the distractions and keep the lights low. Also, the bedroom temperature should be moderate.
An important part of developing healthy sleeping habits in your children is to have one yourself. To ensure you get a good sleep at night, make sure that:
- You remain active during the day.
- Avoid heavy meals at night and caffeinated products in the evening.
- Follow your own bedtime rituals.
- Read a book or listen to some soft music to relax.
- Turn off the television, cell phone, radio or computer when you go to bed.
*Remember, your child sees your every action and habit and tries to follow them. So, if you want them to develop good and healthy habits, you need to adopt them first.
