Tips To Ensure Your Kids Get A Good Night’s Sleep
The kids need to catch some zzzs.
With school back in session, it is so important that kids get plenty of rest so they’re bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for their education. Whether they’re learning remotely at home or in-person in the classroom, a well-rested child will learn better and perform at their peak.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the rules for many households, it’s time to get back to basics with a regular routine and a sleep schedule that’s suitable for school. This means a pre-set bedtime and wake-up time, as well as uninterrupted slumber with no midnight snacks or sneaking out of bed to watch TV or to chit chat and play with siblings.
