Having a restful night is a basic necessity for anybody. However, for children, it is that much more important, since as they sleep, they grow, develop mentally and physically, and renew their energies. That's why it's crucial that you instill healthy sleeping habits on your child, especially now that it's summer break and their daily routine has changed dramatically. For a few tips on how to do just that, refer to the post below.

How to Instill Healthy Sleeping Habits in Your Child

Teach Them

Communication is key if you'd like your child to learn how to sleep correctly, which is why you should try to teach them why sleep is beneficial to them and why they should keep a routine.

Use Up Their Energy

Children have seemingly endless amounts of energy. Unfortunately, if they're not tired, they may not get quality sleep. To avoid that, ensure your child has daily physical activities that will tire them out.

Set a Time

Bedtime, along with their wake up time, should be at the same time every day. This will help them to have a sleeping routine in which they can get rest and develop effectively.

Work on a Routine

After your child has eaten dinner, it's time to get them ready for bed. A routine in which they shower, brush their teeth, put their pajamas on, and more, will allow their bodies to know it's time to rest. You could even include joint reading time for you two in your routine.

Establish Limits

If you'd like your child to have a restful night, you will need to establish certain limits. These include no watching TV or other screens an hour before bed, not drinking caffeinated beverages, and no heavy meals late at night.

Create the Perfect Environment

Finally, to ensure your child will have a good night's sleep, you should create the perfect environment for it. Provide pillows and a bed that are both comfortable and supportive. Likewise, make sure the room is cool (e.g. 70° F) and dark so they can rest appropriately.
