We have a guest blogger today sharing her top tips for helping children settle at night after the clocks change. Sunny, bright evenings can mean excitable children and in Amy’s case, it is sometimes only bedtime when it is dark.
Losing an hours sleep when the clocks go forward this weekend is not the most welcome idea to me, but, it does mean that the usual wake up time will be an hour later. (for one day)
The biggest bedtime issue for me and many other parents is the lighter evenings, a couple of my children believe that it isn’t bedtime until it is dark………if that is the case, it will be a very long summer.
I thought I’d share a couple of tips that have worked for me with my five children, each child is different, and my middle daughter is deaf, so helping her understand how to relax, ready for sleep with the sun still up was important.
I hope these have been useful and if you have any tips of your own please feel free to share. I wish you all restful nights and relaxed children……we can all dream.
