Sometimes, putting children to bed is the easy part—it’s getting them to sleep that’s hard. We all have nights when we just can’t shut down our brains, and kids do, too. Those are the nights they’re in and out of their rooms after you’ve put them to bed. Maybe there’s a big, exciting event taking place the next day, or maybe they’re worried about something at school. Whatever it is that’s keeping them up, your task is to con your kid into forgetting about it and hitting the hay, so you can, too.
