Kids are finally getting back to school after almost 5 months off due to the Covid 19 Lockdown. After the stress of homeschooling this will be welcome news for many parents but getting your child back into a routine can be difficult especially after being out of sync for so long. However, the consistency of a routine is more important than ever to help your child feel secure during this uncertain time.
How much sleep does my child need?
The National Sleep Foundation has revised their sleep recommendations to the following: Pre-schoolers

- Aged 3-5 years: 10-13 hours
- School Aged Children 6-13 years: 9-11 hours
- Teenagers 14-17 years: 8-10 hours

Relaxation and Wind-down Techniques
The NHS recommends that children create a relaxing wind-down routine that they can repeat every night at the same time to help them get in the frame of mind for sleep and rest
- Having a warm (not hot) bath will help their body reach an ideal temperature for rest

- Dimming the lights will encourage your child’s body to produce the sleep hormone, melatonin; Darken the room with our BlocOut™ Blackout Blinds and use a night light instead to help them unwind and prepare for sleep

- Once they’re in bed, encourage your child to read quietly or listen to some relaxing music to relax the mind by distracting it

- Switch off Tablets, smartphones and TV’s for an hour before they go to sleep and try to keep their bedroom a screen-free zone

- Teenagers should avoid drinking caffeine, such as tea, coffee or energy drinks, particularly in the 4 hours before falling asleep
