Sleep balances a child's emotions, promotes feelings of well-being and increases mental focus and memory functions, so set a sensible bedtime (facilitating 7-9 hours of sleep) on schools nights.
Just as when they were babies, school-aged kids need pre-bedtime rituals to help wind them down from a busy and exciting day. This could entail dimming lights, turning off music, t.v. or computers, and surrendering toys, smart phones and tablets. Thirty minutes of reading and quiet conversation is also a longtime, trusted and true method to ease them into slumberland. And remember, a tidy room means a tidy mind, so foster relaxation with good housekeeping.
