Tips for a Good Back-to-School Evening Routine
Tips for a Good Back-to-School Evening Routine: Here’s How to Get Back on Track
It’s that dreaded time of the year again. No more sunny days at the beach. No more staying up late at night, and no more reasons to laze around at home. Yes, it’s back-to-school season once again!
The beginning of a new school year can be a challenging transition not just for kids but also for parents such as yourself. There will be a lot of adjustments — no doubt about that. Bedtime will be earlier than usual, alarm clocks will once again be put to use, and extra chores will be added to your daily to-do list.
Fortunately, there are ways to make the transition less difficult for the entire family. As long as you’re implementing a good back-to-school routine, everything will run smoothly at home. While early morning preparation is crucial, your child’s evening routine matters just as much.
Here’s a list to help you and your family get back on track as another school year begins:
- Limit screen time.
If your child is like most kids who got used to spending their summer evenings glued to their phones, tablets, or TVs, it’s time to change their habit. Don’t allow your youngster to use any gadgets for a full hour before they hit the sack. Put away all devices, especially if they have a test the next day or homework to complete.
- Switch to an earlier bedtime.
Because your child got used to sleeping late during summer nights, bedtime is certainly one of the most difficult transitions. That said, try to reset their bedtime gradually. Move it up by 15 to 20 minutes every night, until such time that it’s early enough. Don’t forget to aim for your child to have 9 to 11 hours of sleep.
- Watch what your child eats.
Summer might have gotten your child used to eat pretty much anything — from junk food and sweet treats to their fast-food favorites. Such foods aren’t only bad for their health, but they’re also known to sabotage sleep. Cut down on sugary foods and beverages at night. Prepare meals that are rich in carbs and protein instead.
- Modify their sleep routine.
Establishing a solid bedtime routine promotes quality sleep for everyone in the family. This means ruling out those pre-bedtime activities your child used to do during summer, such as late snacking and playing video games. This way, falling asleep early wouldn’t be a problem.
