Tips of Seasoning Children Bed Time
Good sleep is essential part of child’s healthy life. It makes him, or she have a day full of fun as well as excitement. The current research has revealed that very many young children have serious sleep deficiency. For those who are in school, the sleep hours missed makes them sleep in class. This behavior of having sleepy pupils in class has resulted in teachers getting angry, some being given light punishments and eventually poor academic records. The problem of lack of sleep in children continues to be mystifying as the day’s progress. Here are some of the likely reasons which have led to this daunting trend.
First are the effects of the current technology. Today’s child best friends are electronic gadgets and toys. Your child’s daily routine is to watch cartoon and play computer games. Computer and play stations screens have emissions which keeps the mind active even when one is asleep. Ensure that you have minimized the amount of time which your child has access to these gadgets, and more so switch them off like 45 minutes before they retire to bed. This trick works miraculously because once the screen is off, he or she will get bored of your old age chores and just sleep. With this, you will have prepared his mind that it is time for sleep.
Busy schedule of parents is also another problem contributing to the lack of sleep of children. Some adults have no time for their kids at all. Children miss their parents who are barely available from Monday to Sunday. Be there for them after school, be their source and inspiration which disconnects them from “electronic like” life.
Modern world offers limited space to keep the child physically active. The congested cities have very limited space to build spacious schools with good and room playgrounds. They lead a dull life because of lack of time and space to play. No exercise at all; in the morning they just walk to the gate, get picked and dropped, and the same happens in the nightfall. For those who are in boarding schools, they are reading machines because they have bulks of assignments and very little time to play. Ensure that the kid plays enough and is fed with healthy food.
Finally, ensure that your child eats some hours before bedtime so as to allow proper digestion to take place, and avoid instances of need for toilet during the night.
