Bedtime: Developing Good Routines - Discussion Group
Time & Location
About the Event
These two-hour group sessions give parents a chance to explore a particular parenting issue with a small group of other parents and caregivers. They include an informational presentation as well as tips and suggestions for dealing with each specific behavioral challenge. You’ll see short video clips showing other parents successfully dealing with the same issue, and you’ll be encouraged to share your experiences and thoughts with the other parents in the group, if you so wish. You’ll also receive a workbook with simple exercises and information to help you try your new strategies at home.
Developing Good Bedtime Routines
Children need a good night’s sleep so they have enough energy for the next day’s activities. Parents also need adequate sleep and some child-free time to ensure their own needs are being met. As children grow, they can learn to become more independent in their sleep routine. This discussion group gives positive parenting strategies to help you develop a good bedtime routine, teach your children to fall asleep in their own bed, and stay in their bed until morning. You will discuss common bedtime problems and skills that will help children get into a good bedtime routine. You’ll learn how to keep track of sleep patterns to better understand them and strategies for preventing these problems. Finally, you’ll design a personal plan for developing good bedtime routines in your family.
