Be honest: How many times have you yelled at your spouse from the other room to stop winding the kids up before bedtime?
I know it sounds counterintuitive to rile a child up before getting them to relax for the night, but your spouse (often dad 🤣) is actually on to something!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For many kids, sleep can be less restless if they have an opportunity to get that last burst of energy out before settling down for the night. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Rough and tumble play is not only a great outlet for this, but it’s also a really great way to involve both parents in the bedtime routine. ⠀
