Bedtime Rituals


  1. You do have the power to change the bedtime ritual – but only if you are well rested yourself. Call in reinforcements if possible.
  2. The bedtime ritual starts in the morning and lasts all day.
  3. Physical activity is a great success strategy.
  4. The night time ritual: Dinner with no stimulants, bath or swim, special jammies, reading/singing, low key fun in bed, leaving. Reward good sleep behaviors.
  5. The bedtime pass.
  6. Separation anxiety
  7. Bedwetting
  8. Other nighttime problems – sleepwalking, night terrors, smearing, waking at a specific time
  9. When nothing works – get help, check medical, look for clues.
