Bedtime with the kids

Good news or bad news? I know parents who struggle for hours every night to get their child to go to bed, while, for other families, it’s easy peasy!

Every child and every family are different – that’s a given. And there are always ‘special’ circumstances, of course. But here’s my take on bedtime for kids. . .

Mindset is key. Going to bed is a good thing. Everybody does it. It’s a special time – special routine, special clothes, special blanket or soft toy, etc. (Special book to read, of course!)

Never, ever make going to bed a punishment! And never make it an argument – it shouldn’t be. Who’s in charge? If a parent says it’s bedtime, well, then it is! Great. Grab the toothbrush, the pajamas, the special toy, let’s read the book – and goodnight.

Don’t waver, especially with little ones. If one night their fit-throwing tactics win them extra hours then of course they’ll try it again, and again. . . Get junior used to a good healthy routine. 😉

Parents need their time too! Having a peaceful time to share together or to simply relax before your own bedtime is a good thing. You don’t need to feel guilty because you work all day and only get to spend a couple of hours with the kids at night.

Letting kids stay up late will only make you, and them, tired – and probably cranky too.

Make the hours that you do have before the children’s bedtime be good ones. Find out what they’re up to. Talk to them! Play games with them! (real games like in the old days. 🙂 Then plan some good time to do things together on the days when you’re not working.

So how about you? Do you have a special routine at night to send your child off to sweet slumber without a battle? Let us hear about it.
