Sleep routineI don’t know about your house, but we have a very relaxed bedtime routine in the summer. So that means we have to start about 2 weeks before school starts to ease back into our normal bedtime routine. The same goes for our morning routine. What typically happens is one week before school starts, I begin waking up the kids 30 minutes earlier every day until by the last few days we are waking up at our normal school hour. The same goes for our bedtime routine. Start your kids back to bed 30 minutes earlier than the previous day until you have returned them to their normal bedtime schedule. If they object? Start reading books again at bedtime. Pull out some old classics and have them read a page and then you read a page. If they say they’re too grown up for a bedtime story, remind them that you are never too old for a bedtime story! Then ask if they want to read a book on their own at bedtime. Reading not only winds them down for bed, but also moves them back into the reading mode of school.
