Our top strategy to help children with bedtime is an age-appropriate reward system. Young children earn points as they complete the bedtime routine and immediately get an extra story or song at bedtime. Older children earn points over the week and get to pick a special activity during the weekend. Points can be awarded for bathing, brushing teeth, picking up toys, and putting clothes in the hamper.
