I haven’t read Go the F**k to Sleep, but I understand the sentiment. All parents have been in the situation when our children will not settle down and go to sleep. It is especially frustrating when you have plans for their snoozing time and patience runs thin, or you worry about your child being exhausted the next day.
There are many strategies to ease your children to bed on time:
- Make sure they get enough exercise throughout the day
- Eat dinner early
- Avoid caffeine (it’s in chocolate)
- Take a hot bath
- Read to them
