Family Tip of the Month: Bed Time

boy_sleepingThe Family Institute’s December Family Tip of the Month discusses how a regular bedtime plays an important role in our kids’ healthy social and emotional development.

From this month’s tip:

“Irregular bedtimes may be harmful by disrupting the body’s natural circadian rhythms, which are known to be slow in adapting to schedule changes, at any age. And when irregular bedtime leads to sleep deprivation, children’s physical development, including brain maturation, might suffer.”

Read the entire Tip of the Month and learn how to encourage your child to work through things themselves.
