#1 Create a Night time Routine – From the time you get home, keep the routine similar every night. example: come home, play time for 30 to 60 minutes. Homework, dinner. Calming activities like reading a book or taking a bath can help your child wind down for bed. Plus, if you repeat the same process nightly, the routine will eventually cue their brain and body that it’s time to sleep, and keep the expectation routine for the child.
#2 Pre-Plan – Make sure everything is ready for the morning the night before. It is so much less stressful in the morning (especially when you are not a morning person like myself) to have lunches made the night before, clothes picked and laid out, bathed, and backpack and homework ready to go.
#3 Get a Good Night Sleep – By Gradually adjusting bedtimes, Create a fun bedtime routine (reading books, cuddling, 15 minutes of play in room with no technology. Purchase Black Out Shades and have some ambiance sound in the back ground
