7 Tips for Better Sleep for Your Child
Better sleep will come if your child is getting the right amount of it. It's important to know how much sleep each age group should get:
- Infants and toddlers should get about 12 hours of sleep.
- Children typically need 10 hours of sleep.
- Teenagers need 8 to 9 hours of sleep.
There are some children who can sleep for a shorter time and do just fine, while other children seem to need a little bit more. You know best what your child needs, so make sure that you are making it possible for them to get the right amount of sleep.Tip #7 - Model a Good Example
If you are always tired because you are not getting good sleep, then you are not modeling a good example. Make sure you not only get adequate sleep but you don't let bedtime become stressful for you. A good attitude will help your child calm down much easier.
