Go To Bed

graphic reading "Little Joy Map"

Before I write anything down or test anything out on my family, I read as much as I can on the topic. Books, online articles–anything I can find to help me get a better understanding of the topic.

This month’s topic is sleep and one thing is coming in loud and clear: we need more of it than we’re getting.

I promise to write more, but it’s late and I should get to bed, so I will. Check back with me again this weekend as I have some cute Charlie stories to share.

If you’re up late and reading this, go to bed!

    Dr. Weissbluth’s sleep book is very eye opening. Kids need so much sleep. And we definitely proved out his premises in our house. I recall a time when we put our twins to bed at 6pm at night and they would sleep to 6 or 7AM. So many ideas that people have about sleep are the exact opposite of how the body works, like many parents will keep kids awake at night to ‘wear them out’ but in fact they need the exact opposite, as sleep begets more sleep! I’ll step off my soapbox now!

    • I totally agree. I read Dr. Weissbluth’s book to get ready for this month and it really changed the way I think about kids and sleep.

    Anne beat me to it. I was just going to suggest the same book. Many friends made fun of us for putting our kids to bed at 6p or 630p, but we quietly laughed back inside when our kids were always happy and pleasant and theirs were melting down because they were so unbelievably tired!
