Back to School 101: Back to Sleep

Written by Lisa Jillanza

As parents and their children enjoy their last month of summer, school is looming right around the corner. Now is the time to get back into a school sleeping schedule, after having such a lax sleeping schedule over the summer months.  According to the Federal Citizen Information Center, children between the ages of 6 and 9 require at least 10 hours of sleep per night and older children require at least 9 hours.

To get your child in the school sleeping schedule:

  • Create a regular bed time and make sure you and your child stick to it.
  • Make sure your child avoids eating a heavy meal before their bed time.
  • Make sure your child avoids caffeine at least 6 hours before their bed time.
  • Allow for play and relaxation time before their bed time.
  • Create a bed time routine that is relaxing for your child, instead of stressful.
