Children deserve an explanation as to why sleep is important.
Cralle and Brown believe that the Snoozby books will help foster a better understanding of sleep and subsequently better sleep habits in young children.
Always make bedtime a positive and pleasant experience and make sufficient sleep a family value. Make the bedroom conducive to healthy sleep (make it a sleep friendly environment): a comfortable mattress, clean and comfortable pillows, a transitional object (stuffed animal, blanket)
Get YOUR recommended amount of sleep. Sleep deprivation leaves us all irritable, short on patience and cranky. Your sleep needs and your child’s sleep needs are equally important. Sleep, along with diet and exercise, is paramount to a healthy lifestyle. We should help our children understand just how important sleep is and parents need to serve as role models for respecting, prioritizing and obtaining sufficient sleep.
