Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: You can help your child control her sleeplessness.
PRACTICE: Today, start a journal that records how well your child is sleeping.
On nights when she doesn’t sleep well, note any possible causes. For example, late naps, things she is eating or drinking in the evening, TV, internet, or bedtime story input before bed, arguments, exercise, lack of exercise, etc.
Keep your journal every day for the next 30 days.
Set up a reminder for yourself to analyze your journal at the end of the 30 days.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, THE DREAM JAR. Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.
Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
