    • Parenting Tip #7 Sleep

      Train your child to sleep early, it will benefit the child as sleep will allow the body to generate cells for growth. You need more sleep when you are young compare to elderly person. If you child sleeps late say 11pm, you can slowly move his/her sleeping time earlier by 15-30 minutes until you hit a suitable time. I get my children to sleep by 9:30pm.

      When you child understands you (above 2), you can train her very easily. Tug your child in with a dim light, you can also read a bedtime story or sing her a lullaby. Teach your child to sleep on her own.

      The hard part is she cries when you leave. You leave the room and tell her that you are outside, it is ok. If she doesn’t stop, you go in after 10 minutes and tell her that you are outside. Try to use positive words like she is a big girl or a good girl. Do these steps until she sleeps on her own. It is tough but you need to be persistent.

      You can use security blankets like a blanket, a toy or a teddy bear to accompany her. Some extra, you can make your child room as comfy as she wants to sleep in there with toy area, books area and lots of posters of her favorite cartoons.
