Kids need adequate rest for proper development. On average for children under 5 years, sleep should range from about 10-12 hours per night. Parents also need downtime and a good rest as well.
5 BEDTIME ROUTINE TIPS
1.) POST the routine in or near the bedroom so kids can follow along.
2.) QUIET activities before bed are helpful like colouring or books.
3.) Keep things POSITIVE by saying good things about the day or what your child means to you.
4.) Give enough TIME for the whole routine to be complete.
5.) Offer time NOTIFICATIONS between each part of the routine such as '5 minutes till bath time'.
Enjoy & have FUN!
