One of the most common struggles that parents go through is getting their kids to go to bed. As most parents have experienced at one point or another, children usually go through periods of having trouble staying/falling asleep or simply not wanting to go to sleep yet. In both circumstances, it is always important to identify what the underlying problem is. Caffeine from unexpected sources, late-night television viewing, allergies, stress and even separation anxiety can all contribute to a child’s reluctance or inability to sleep.
Most experts agree that one of the most effective ways of mitigating bedtime problems is by establishing a routine. As you can see with this child, routines can be as adorable as they are helpful.
