 A good night’s sleep is crucial in adults, but it’s even more important in children, as it boosts their memory and cognitive ability, plus it enhances their performance and alertness during the day. These are just a few benefits of sleep and they will definitely affect the academic achievement of your children.

The importance of sleep can’t be overstated, unfortunately it’s very easy to neglect this apparently small topic. For this reason at The Tutoring Center in Herndon, we created the following post containing helpful information to increase the sleep quality of your children.

Bedtime

Establishing a clear and non flexible bedtime is crucial to set your children’s internal clocks. You can help your children prepare for sleep by creating a relaxing routine. Also, remember that your children’s bed should be associated with rest, so they should refrain from carrying out stimulating activities on them, like making their homework or checking their cell phones. 

Condition

Certain settings are required for a good night’s sleep. Make sure to install heavy drapery to prevent any light from entering the room. Also, check the mattress condition and ban the use of electronic devices, as several studies show that they disrupt sleep and prevent the brain from shutting down.

Food & Drinks

Keep in mind that your children should have a light snack before bedtime, however you should avoid high-fat and protein rich foods. Don’t forget to cut the fluid intake at least 2 hours before going to bed, otherwise your children will stand up to go to the bathroom. Last but not least, it’s might seem obvious that children shouldn’t consume caffeine, however we can find this substance in certain drinks like ice tea, soda or even chocolate. 

Getting the right amount and quality of sleep will help your children to learn better and it also strengthens their immune system. Also, be sure to read our guide on improving study habits.
