Ways to get your toddler to like bedtime

If your little one is resistant or fighting bedtime and generally protesting during the last part of the evening there are ways to shift the power struggle and de-fuse the mood by encouraging them into a more collaborative mode:

💤 Talk to them about what’s going to happen next at each point. “We’re going to change your nappy now and then after that we’re going to read a story”

💤 Give them a choice in some of the decisions. “Would you like to choose which story we read? “Which pyjamas would you like to wear?”

💤 Ask for their “help” with little steps to prepare their sleep space for bedtime. “Would you like to help me close the curtains?” “Shall we turn down the light?” Image via: @michellejonesphotography
