Win the Bedtime Battle with Your Kids

Sleep is very important in a child’s growth and development. Their body needs time to relax and heal, as does their mind, but when bedtime is a fight, sleep can be disrupted. Too little sleep can interfere with many aspects of your child’s day from poor learning and concentration to behavior problems and irritability. Doctors recommend that children between the ages of 3 and 12 get between 10 and 12 hours of sleep per night.

Why Children Fight Bedtime

There can be many reasons why your child throws a fit when it is time for bed or wakes up numerous times throughout the night.

Establishing a Bedtime Routine that Works

Having a routine is key when it comes to bedtime. It is predictable and lets your child know what to expect without any surprises.

Figure out what works for your child and what they need to sleep better at night and then stick with it. Children may argue, but ultimately they like routine because it is predictable. It may take some time for them to adjust but do not give up. If you are still having sleepless nights and daily fights, contact PediaPlex to find out how we can support you in helping your child get a better night’s rest.
