Is Your Child Having Trouble Staying Asleep? Knock them Out!

How to help your child fall and stay asleep

One could interpret the term "Knock them out" several different ways. Some people might think I'm referring to some kind of corporal punishment - I AM NOT.

Some people immediately think - "Oh, drug them!"

I AM NOT.

I AM referring to my favorite Knock Knock Good Night Playtime Note Pad that has helped my kids in the past to fall asleep, and stay asleep with good dreams.

Every once in a while a friend complains that their child is either having trouble falling asleep, or is waking up in the middle of the night with nightmares. This will be my officla go-to link from now on because I've referred these note pads on several occasions.

For one, I LOVE that they prompt kids to look back at their day. Then they are prompted to think about what they want to dream about AND how they envision the next day is going to turn out. I always feel like if you think positive, it will be positive. Or at least you'll go to bed thinking it will be and you'll get a better night's sleep!

Make Your Own or Buy Knock Knock

Try this - encourge your child to keep a journal next to their bed and each night you can sit with them and ask them certain prompts. You can use the Knock Knock prompts, or try some of your own. The key is to help get them set up for a good night of sleep so keep it light and positive.

Want to buy the pre-made note pads?

You can find Knock Knock Good Night Note Pads at Amazon.com

Sweet dreams!

Twincident #153 A Quiet Morning Ritual

image via FindStuff22 on Photobucket

This morning I woke up at the un-holy hour of 5:30 am and could not get back to sleep. So, I got up and decided to tackle some of the To Dos that were racing through my mind.

I got the coffee made, filled and ran the dishwasher, straightened up the kitchen, and then I heard them.

Quietly chatting and giggling.

It was still early, around 6:30 am but they were up.

And they were so friggin cute.

And they were talking about food!

Tacos, and salad and other stuff.

I realized they were telling each other the silly dreams they had just woken up from.

I realized I didn't want to start on my To Do list.

I realized maybe there was a reason I woke up so early.

So I sat on the floor in the darkened room and sipped my coffee and made them start over from the beginning.
