Why Your Child Is Not Sleeping Well (10-7-15)

Today’s Parenting Reminder:

If you want to try to improve your child’s sleeping, start a journal that records how well your child sleeps each night.

On nights when she doesn’t sleep well, note any possible causes. For example:

  • Late naps
  • Food or drink in the evening
  • TV, Internet, or bedtime story topics before bed
  • Arguments late in the day
  • Exercise or lack of exercise
  • School problems that day
  • School assignments coming up
  • Other _____

Keep your journal every day for 30 days. Set up a reminder for yourself to see what the journal tells you at the end of the 30 days.

Are there certain things that lead to sleep problems over and over again? How can you make changes in those things?
