Help Your Child Get a Good Night's Sleep

Every parent knows how important it is for their child to get a good night's sleep. The challenge, however, is getting their children to bed on time. If this sounds familiar, below are some tips from The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ which can help.

Watch Their Diet

Everybody loves to have a second helping of dessert, however, if that dessert is filled with sugar then it’s also a second helping of ‘staying awake food.’ With this in mind, consider replacing your youngster’s second helping with fresh fruit or a ‘lite’ ice-cream with reduced sugar. Of course, if you expect this to be a recurring treat then consider making your own low-sugar desserts at home which you can use to complement traditional ice cream or cake.

Limit Screen Time

It’s fair to say that everybody enjoys watching TV at some point. Whether it’s a documentary, a movie, or a comedy series, there is something for everyone. It’s also fair to say that, of all the people in your home, your child enjoys watching TV the most. So much so that it is likely the last thing that they do before they go to bed. Watching TV before bed is too stimulating a task and is a top reason why children struggle to drift off to sleep easily. Instead of removing TV time altogether, restrict the viewing time until an hour before bed. Then, as part of their bedtime routine, add in some night time reading of material they choose.

Incentives

There is a fine line between incentives and bribes. A good way to not bribe your child is by limiting your incentives to things in your home which don’t cost money. For example, if your student goes to bed on time at night, consider making them their favorite breakfast the next morning. If your student is a little older, consider the daily wifi password the reward for going to bed on time the night before.
