What is bedtime? Flo's definition
If we left it up to kids, they would never go the bed at the same time every day. They might fall asleep early one night, exhausted from activities, causing them to wake up early the next morning. The following day, they might take a nap in the afternoon and stay up playing until the late hours of the night.
Bedtime is the time and routine that you establish when your child needs to be in bed for the night. The exact routine can be customized to fit your family's preferences, including your child's. Some children like to have a bedtime story; others just need to be told it's time for bed. It's helpful to establish a regular routine for your children. This creates a sense of order and reliability in their day-to-day lives.
