Sleep Rules Poster
Last updated June 11, 2006
Inspired by advice from Dr. Marc Weissbluth's "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child" (p. 195), these 4 Sleep Rules have helped many-a-child get into better sleeping habits.
This Kidea can be used as a model to make your own poster, or for those feeling less crafty, you'll find two versions of the poster in this file; a color-it-yourself poster and a full-color poster. Whichever you choose, we recommend having your child be involved in decorating the poster with crayons or stickers and/or hanging it above his or her bed.
A sticker chart or other reward system for following the sleep rules is also very effective. We highly recommend reading Dr. Weissbluth's book for more advice on children's sleep issues.
