A mom recently emailed me an interesting question. Her three year old has never had a consistent bedtime routine and she is interested in starting one. In this video, I answer several questions:
- When is the best time to institute a bedtime routine?
- What time should bedtime occur?
- Where should bedtime occur?
- What are the good parts of a bedtime routine?
As you know, I think bedtime is really critical for helping kids get a good night of sleep. It is the key cue for creating good sleep habits, and has been shown to ensure good sleep throughout childhood.
