5 Ways to Avoid Bedtime Tantrums
If you have young children is bedtime an issue in your house? For some parents of young children, when bedtime comes around, chaos breaks out. The whole routine is affected if you have a child who is reluctant at bedtime.
Children of preschool age need between 11 to 13 hours sleep a day – including nap time. If your child goes to bed too late, they might not be getting the sleep that they need, which can lead to a host of other issues, including irritability and sleepiness during the day.
