Trouble sleeping? Sleep problems in children
So many children have sleep problems and they find it difficult to settle down to sleep, they also wake up at night.
Sleep problems in children might be a cause to worry for some people, while some may not have same problem. If you or your child is experiencing sleeping problems, you can try some methods to see if there will be any changes. Don’t force it on your child to do what I recommend here, remember every child is different; you just need to know what is best for him or her.
Child can t sleep, if your child refuses to sleep early
Set a time you would want the child to be in bed, when is close to the time for the child to go to bed, start with a 20 minutes bedtime routine. Make this a routine, and then continue to bring down the time till you reach the desired bedtime for your child.
Don’t spend too much time when putting the child to bed, you must set a limit. If you read bedtime story to your child, don’t read too many stories, just read one. When you are done, tuck the child in and kiss the child goodnight.
Giving the child a toy he/she likes is good, but only if the child usually uses it. Leave some little light in the child around the room.
There is possibility that the child can still get up after, if the child do get up, take the child back to bed with as much little effort. Repeat this method constantly.
