bedtimeLetting your child know what is to come in advance of the event makes a parents job much easier. The same holds true for bedtime. Regular routines before bedtime makes the transition from play to sleep much smoother for both the child and the parent. These routines should not be so rigid, though, that you are held prisoner to the same book or the exact same ritual each night. Some parents we have spoken to have suggested the following:

 "My child knows that after dinner, she will get her bath, put on her p.j.’s , brush her teeth and then we read a book together."

 "I don't give a bath each night to my son. He gets one every other night, then we say our prayers together and he is off to lullaby land."

 "My child likes me to make up a story each night. If we have a little extra time, we will read a book, but he definitely prefers my stories. I always include him as the main character."

 "My daughter makes me kiss each of her dolls (friends) good night before turning out the light."

 "A bath really relaxes my son. He loves to play in the water until his toes get pruney. Then its prayers and night night."
