A person spends a third of his life on sleep. Sleep is an important part of our life, just like clean air, water, nutrition. It is at night that our body restores its strength and puts them off on a new day. And if we are talking about a dream of a growing child, then sleep is a “engine of his progress”, t.to. It is in a dream that the child is growing.
So how to lay the child correctly so that he grew up healthy and full -fledged? This article will help you in this matter.
Let’s start with the fact that a person is able to do without food for a month, and without sleep only a week.
Having spent about sixty hours without sleep, a person becomes sluggish, inhibited, speech becomes slurred, he does not respond to the actions taking place in the environment. Behavior is similar to a person who is intoxicated. Only the consequences in the absence of sleep are much worse than alcohol.
As a result, children just need to sleep. After all, they grow, and nothing should interfere with their development. For newborn children, the duration of sleep per day should be at least twenty hours.
A child at the age of one year should sleep eighteen hours a day, and a teenager at least ten hours.

As a rule, if your child does not want to go to the crib, then there are only three reasons for this. We make a reservation that we do not take the cause of the absence of sleep due to illness or poor well -being. So, the first reason is that the child is tired, t.to. All day was in motion. The second is overwork. Third – the baby does not understand that his body needs a dream. You can handle the first two reasons quite simply. It is only necessary to draw up a clear schedule of the day so that the child does not overwork from physical and mental classes. The third reason today is the most common. In order to fight her, you will take some time. As a rule, in order for the child to adhere to the regime, then you need to go to bed at the same time. It is necessary to prepare the baby at least half an hour. Turn off all electronic devices, push the curtains, put all the toys in the crib.
All this will help the young discovere to fall asleep with a strong sleep. It is worth emphasizing that it is necessary to exclude adult invasion to the “teaching” of the child to bed, because in the future, each time, lying in the crib, the baby will demand to shake or read a fairy tale.
