Tips for Children to Sleep in Their Own Room
February 11, 2021
Here are some tips that parents can do, so that children can sleep in their own room:
- Find out the reasons why your child wants to sleep in your place. There are many reasons why they behave this way and finding out about this can be a difficult one to do. You can do this by starting to find out about more general things: Are they afraid of the things that might come up at nightfall? Are they jealous of their younger sibling and this is one way to get more attention? Do the sounds disturb their sleep? Is their room too dark and do they need more light when night falls? is bed and other equipment according to the child’s interest? If you already know the cause, immediately follow up and find a solution so that it does not become a barrier for children to sleep in their own karma.
- Perform a bedtime ritual. Some children need to be calmed down slowly before taking them to their room. Sometimes your child will still appear in your room after you perform this particular ritual. For example, why don’t you invite them to take a shower and read a story or sing a song before bed? This effort can let them know that it is bedtime and their minds have been conditioned to it.
- Give your children some “cover” to help them through the night. Some children are good when they know there is reliable protection. For example, you can use several large dolls that can be used as friends while sleeping. Another good way is to make them feel safe and protected by using large stuffed animals to replace the presence of other family members. In other words, your children can sleep with dolls or other toys as a substitute for the comfort they get when sleeping with their mother.
- Add light to their room. This can be used to counter the night terrors they experience. For some children, darkness can make a familiar room a very scary place. And the presence of light in the room can make the room more comfortable for them again.
- Be patient. Your efforts may not be successful the first night. To make your child fall asleep in their own room may not be easier than you think. Continue to do the efforts that have been tried before, never stop before your child actually sleeps in his own room comfortably.
