Dealing With a Young Night Owl
If your school-age child has trouble falling asleep at bedtime, here are some tips to encourage a faster trip to dreamland:
Establish a winding down routine each night. For example, read a story to the child in the same place.
Encourage a pre-bedtime bath or warm shower. The soothing rush and sound of water often serves as a natural sleep aid for kids.
Keep your sense of humor. Remember that wrestling with kids over bedtime is a universal experience.
You may wonder what all the fuss is about exercise. Simply put, inactivity is hazardous to your health. Physical activity can help you prevent chronic disease, manage your weight, and stay mentally fit. The best news is that it's never too late to adopt a more active lifestyle.
Learn how to become a proactive patient. Understand your treatment choices. Get the latest news on advances in cancer. If you or a loved one is facing cancer, you’ll want to explore the Cancer Knowledgebase, with separate sections on more than 60 types of the disease.
You want the best for your child, from good nutrition to effective discipline to a breadth of life opportunities.
