One of the biggest problem a father faces is when his child doesn’t go to sleep easily in the night. They try many things to put them to sleep, but only finds success when finally the child is tired and sleeps. A child has to sleep properly so that they don’t feel tired the next day. It’s a tough job, but can be done by following these steps!
1. Setting bedtime
Set a specific bedtime and make sure to make that a habit. Follow the same bedtime for at least a week and your child will adjust to it.
2. Simple activities before bedtime
Let your child do simple activities before bedtime. Post dinner activities should be quieter and peaceful. Let them watch T.V. Or read a book.
3. Fear of the dark
It is a common thing that almost every child faces. There are some things that can be done to overcome this. Stay with your child till he/she is asleep or read a story to them or you can turn on the bed light which is comparatively softer than other light in the room.
4. Bedtime object
A teddy bear? An action figure? Anything would do. This thing helps them in sleeping and they don’t get disturbed.
You can create a suitable sleeping environment by making the room comfortable. Dark colored curtains, cozy blanket, fluffy mattress, these things can play a major role in putting you child to sleep.
