Having young children is a great time to reevaluate your family routines. What’s good for your children is often what’s good for you too. I cannot say enough about the importance of sleep for everyone in the family and yet it is so often the one thing we just don’t seem to have time for as parents and we often give poor sleeping habits to our children. Instead let’s give them the life gift of good healthy sleep!
Evening routines are just as important as morning routines. We all know it can be a joy, but at times it can also be a problem. Bedtime is different for each child and family. The question is not what your bedtime routine is, but rather is everyone getting plenty of sleep, including the parents? If what you’re doing is working for everyone in the house then life is good! If you or your child are stressed at bedtime, or if you or your child are not getting regular sleep then it is worth taking the time to build a better evening routine.
