Why Do Kids Not Fall Asleep At Bedtime?
- -It could be they had too much sugar before bed or a high carb dinner.
- -Kids have a hard time going from active play to going to sleep.
- -It’s difficult for kids to go to sleep after television shows or video games.
- -Scheduling too many outings in the evenings prevents children from having a regular schedule that their mind and body can adjust too.
- -Kids who oversleep in the morning typically don’t go to sleep at their regular bedtime.
Things We Can Do To Help Children Fall Asleep
- Be consistent with nighttime routine.
- Provide an atmosphere at bedtime that reflects quiet and restful.
Keep in mind that any new routine takes time to get used to. In time kids learn to expect it and look forward to it. I like to think that everything we do with our kids is building memories and rituals that they will pass on to their kids.
