Now that summer is almost over, and school is around the corner, betimes will change. I found that starting two weeks before school is the trick. Start in 15 minute increments, and increase each day until the desired time you want your children to go to bed.
Also I found this adorable sleep clock called, “My Tot Clock” It is a nightlight, plays bedtime stories & lullabies, is alarm clock, and is an activity & timeout timer too!
Go to www.mytotclock.com to view details.
Also another clock I found is called, “Ok to Wake!” (comes in green & pink) found at www.amazon.com.
I find that including your children in the process promotes a positive outcome. You could take them to Target, or order it with them online, which they get excited that they are getting to be a, “Big Girl/Boy”.
