Summer is coming to a close, but something you might be wondering is how you can keep your children on a more consistent sleep schedule when they are not in school. Sleep schedules come (somewhat) naturally during the school year, as your family has a steady routine. Every day, Monday – Friday, you wake up at the same time, go to school and work and go to sleep around the same time every night, just to wake up and do it all over again. But what about when school’s out? If your children are old enough, they may stay home during the day and thus their schedules might be all out of wack. Why go to sleep early when you can sleep in the next day? Schedules are important, even in the summer, especially so if you want a seamless transition when school starts back up.
