Last week we introduced our “Wellbeing Wednesday” whereby we invite you to take twenty minutes each Wednesday to learn something new or change the way you do something to enhance your child’s wellbeing. We gave some suggestions in our Twitter feed.
As children have settled back into school, teachers are noticing that many seem tired at the end of the day and towards the end of the week. Now might be a good time for us all to refresh our understanding of the link between children’s sleep and their physical and mental functioning. With the longer autumn nights ahead it’s worth investing some time into thinking about your child’s sleep routine.
We know this is difficult for families and NHS sleep tips for children has some suggestions and tips, including a relaxing breathing exercise that is helpful for some children at bedtime.
Children who have slept well have a better chance of learning well!
