It’s all about going back to sleep and remaining asleep for a full night’s rest. If they get sufficient good night’s sleep, most youngsters get up on their own in the morning. In less than 20 minutes of going to sleep, the majority of children are sound asleep. Whereas some children have difficulties in sleeping, and if they can’t sleep, neither can you.
When children refuse to relax and go to sleep, night-time can become a battleground. However, there are techniques to improve your chances of winning.
Here are some tips to promote healthy sleep in children
1) Maintain a consistent sleeping and waking schedule.
Every day, maintain your child’s nighttime and wake-up periods within 1-2 hours of one another. This keeps your child’s internal clock on a consistent schedule. It’s a great concept for holidays, vacations, and school weeks alike.
2) Before going to bed, unwind.
Help your child to unwind before going to bed. Adolescent children may prefer to unwind by reading a novel, listening to relaxing sounds, or doing relaxation breathing exercises. If your child takes longer than 20 minutes to drift off to sleep, they may require more time to relax and unwind before turning off the lights.
3) Make sure that your youngster feels secure at night.
If your child is afraid of going to sleep or being alone in the dark, you can applaud and encourage them for their bravery. Preventing frightening television shows, films, and video games can also assist. A night light can help some youngsters who are afraid of going to bed.
4) If possible, avoid sleeping somewhere else.
It’s easy to develop a practice of falling asleep in strange places. Urge your youngster to sleep in bed while feeling drowsy.
5) Daytime exercise
Regular exercise during the day, in addition to many other benefits to overall health, can help your kid to sleep better at night.
