A very unique way of getting kids to sleep. You might not have even heard of it before.
Kids – if you let them have their way, they will stay up half of the night, which means you don’t get any quality time to yourself or with “you and yours.”
There are many tips to get kids sleeping which range from, giving them warm chocolate drinks, reading them stories at night, maybe driving them round in the car until they fall asleep, good temperature/ventilation in their bedroom etc
However, there is one unique step which you might have not tried. Very simple – Tell your kid to close his/her eyes, keep still and quiet in bed for 10 minutes and they will get a reward for it. This is particularly good, if you have more than one kid, as they would get competitive and all close their eyes, keeping still for about 10 minutes.
In most cases, they would have fallen asleep before the 10 minutes. If they haven’t repeat the exercise – They will eventually nod off.
