I’m pretty sure there are a lot of mothers out there that have had to deal with the following scenario: your child is having trouble sleeping without you in his room. He’s waking up multiple times during the night and needing you to nurse him back to sleep. You are exhausted from getting no sleep at all but don’t know what else to do because the thought of letting your toddler sleep alone makes you anxious!
Hold your tears, Mama!
What if I told you that there is an easier way to get them out of your bed… without all the screaming?
Yes, that exactly what I will share in this blog post as I try to go over how one mother got her two sons who were having trouble sleeping alone, out of her bed by using a “peaceful” way which allowed them to still feel safe while letting their mom to sleep and gain her sanity back.
First, it’s no secret that children need sleep, and benefit from getting enough of it: they’ll be healthier, do better in school and just feel happier overall if they’re sleeping well at night (no matter where you happen to put them).
I know firsthand that getting your child back onto his or her natural sleep pattern can be difficult, but the benefits of doing so far outweigh any difficulty.
It’s important for their development and well-being! I’ve had several instances where my kids wrenched themselves out of bed at some point during early childhood just to suffer through an unproductive night’s rest before being able get up again later on–and then repeat this cycle over until finally waking naturally hours later than usual (or not).
Trust me; these are all signs something isn’t quite right with how you’re caring for them as parents.
Why do I Need to Keep My Kids to Stay on Their Bed at Night?
There are many reasons why you need to have your children sleep in separate rooms. One of the most important is that it allows them some privacy, which can be hard for kids their age and even more so when they’re away from home all day at school or if there’s an illness going around among classmates making everyone worse behaving than usual – not being able get enough restful slumber due this stress may also play factors into poor health decisions down future.
The benefits of having them in separate rooms include: (1) giving kids privacy; (2), allowing for some alone time with parents or siblings without feeling like you’ll break any rules – this may not always happen at home because it takes up valuable vacation days/nights etc.; and thirdly, if one child has an illness among their classmates making everyone worse behaved than usual then being able to get enough restful slumber could also play factors into poor health decisions down future.
Things I did to Train My Two Sons Sleep Separately in Their Own Beds
Distracting children from viewing the screen before bedtime is key for me to helping them sleep. Distractions should be something they find challenging, like doing puzzles or playing games with numbers on it; this will keep their mind engaged instead of fixated solely on screens which can make falling asleep difficult.
For some people because there’s not enough time spent relaxing eyes and brain without stimulation also makes them feel anxious due processing all those negative thoughts in their head as they’re trying hard just getting through each day with little energy left over at night.
In many cases, it is difficult to get children of different ages and personalities sleeping alone. By following these steps you can train your child from an early age in how they should behave when on their own:
🗸 Maintain a consistent bedtime routine– eat before going upstairs so that it’s easier for them fall asleep as soon as possible; have quiet activities such as playing with blocks or doing puzzles without talking too much since this will just allow noise pollution into his/her mind once he takes off book (or electronics).
🗸 Start off simple- if they’re used to sharing an area with one person who may have different schedules than them then just move all toys out into another place before bedtime each day until training becomes easier over time.
🗸 Using noise makers like seashells which make light tapping noises on tiles; these sound waves will help triggering the kids to fall asleep regularly (which would otherwise mean more awakenings). Another idea could entail playing music of your child’s favorite!
🗸 Putting away electronics 20 minutes before they go into their own room and try not coddle them too much when getting ready by giving space in their bed time routine so it’s easier for kids learn how to do their sleep routine without you.
The bottom line is that kids need enough sleep, as their parents do. They’re going to do better when they get enough rest at night and will be less likely to suffer from anxiety or depression as well as other health problems that can come with not getting enough shut-eye.
The lack of a separate bedroom may be why children are suffering from more problems now than they were years ago. A recent study found that those who had to share a room with someone else took longer to fall asleep and reported feeling less rested when they woke up in the morning than their counterparts who slept alone. If you want your child to get better quality rest at night, consider giving them their own space so they don’t have to worry about disturbing anyone or vice versa during bedtime routines or night time waking. What do you think? Do you think your kids need their own bedrooms, too? Let me know!
