Daylight savings may have come and gone, but my family is still adjusting to the shorter days. In a way, losing the sunlight earlier makes it easier to get my kids to bed at a decent hour, but that also makes it more difficult for them to sleep in. I don’t know how many of you have this challenge, but I actually have to force my kids to get extra sleep in the morning! Don’t know if I’ll be able to say the same thing when they’re teens, but, for now, it’s a daily battle.
This isn’t my first rodeo when it comes to turning back the clock, so I have a few tips to help with
1. Just like a set bedtime, we now have a set ‘wake up’ time. I like to write down a time and
leave it next to my kid’s clock in their room, so that they know if they wake up before that
time, they need to go back to bed. This helps mom get my extra (necessary) z’s and
ensures that all of my kids are on the same schedule in the morning.
3. And, finally – stay consistent. Try not to waiver from the new bedtime or “wake up” time
for at least the first few weeks after the time change.
