Developing good sleeping habits is an important cornerstone in your child’s development. We all know that sleep serves fundamental biological needs. However, the time spent before your child goes to sleep could also play a crucial role in unlocking his or her multi-faceted potential.
Maria Montessori viewed bedtime as an opportunity to enhance your child’s ability to self-regulate. Your child’s bedroom provides him or her a familiar, stress-free terrain to use their senses to discover and explore unencumbered, without falling prey to extreme emotions. By making hands-on learning materials freely available to your child, you will help him or her develop independent thinking capabilities.
Keep in mind that every child is different. Some will learn fast, while others may need more time and attention. They may need you to play with them, or comfort or hug them to sleep. Don’t be afraid to give them the attention they seek! Love is an essential ingredient without which all tactics will fall by the wayside.
