01/7Sleep schedule for children is crucial
Kids who attend school need to establish a solid nightly routine for their general wellbeing and academic achievement. Keep in mind that every child is different, so you might need to modify the routine to accommodate your child’s particular requirements and preferences. Be patient and adaptable while you develop and perfect the routine, and don’t forget to set an excellent example by upholding sound sleeping practices. Here are some actions you may take to create a successful bedtime routine:
02/7Establish a regular bedtime
Based on your child’s age and routine, decide on a suitable bedtime for them. In order to maintain control over their internal body clock, make sure that this bedtime is adhered to every night, even on the weekends.
03/7Limit screen time
Encourage your child to refrain from using electronics—such as phones, tablets, and TV—at least an hour before bed. Limit screen usage to one hour per day of high-quality programs for kids ages 2 to 5. Be aware of how much time your child spends on social media and online learning as they become older.
04/7Communicate with them
Megha Chopra, parenting expert, entrepreneur and poet says, “Encourage your child to express any worries they may have about going to bed or going to school. Taking care of these problems can help people feel less anxious and sleep better.”
05/7Create a relaxing bedtime environment
Keep the room dark, quiet, and at a comfortable temperature. Invest in a comfortable mattress and pillows. Some kids may find a nightlight or white noise machine comforting, while others may prefer complete darkness and silence.
06/7Get ready for tomorrow
Organise your child’s school bag, their uniform and pack their lunch and snacks to help them get ready for the next day. As a result, the day can get off to a less stressful start in the morning.
Consistency is the key to an effective bedtime routine. Every night, try to follow the routine as closely as you can. Children’s anxiety can be reduced and bedtime can be more enjoyable for everyone when they know what to expect.
