Now that your child isn't attending school, their daily routine has changed immensely. This isn't ideal, since modifying your child's sleeping schedule can have adverse effects on their physical and mental development. That's why it's important to instill healthy sleeping habits in your child. To learn how to do that, read the tips below.

How to Instill Healthy Sleeping Habits in Your Child

Talk to Your Child

Talking to your child about the importance of sleep, the benefits it brings, and why they should keep a routine, may make them more eager to learn healthy sleeping habits and keep up with them.

Get Them Tired

Children are restless, which is not great when you're trying to get them to sleep. To avoid a nightly confrontation, ensure they use up their energy during the day with physical activities, so they're ready to sleep come nighttime.

Set a Time

Bedtime and wake-up time should always be at the same time (even on weekends and on vacation). Setting recurring times for these will actually help your child rest better and have more efficient sleep processes.

Create a Routine

Each night, before bed, after your child has eaten dinner, they should follow a routine that will get them ready to sleep. For instance, they can brush their teeth and put on their pajamas. If you want, you can even read together in bed as part of the nightly routine.

Establish Limits

Certain things can interfere with a restful night. To guarantee your child will get quality sleep, turn off any screens an hour before bed, avoid consuming sugary or caffeinated snacks or drinks, and don't let them eat heavy meals late at night.

Put Together the Perfect Environment

Finally, you should provide your child with the right environment for them to rest. A dark room with cool temperature (e.g. 70°F) can be just what they need. Likewise, ensure they have a comfy but ergonomic bed, pillows, and blankets.
