Surviving Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Saving Time ensures for longer hours of sunshine to help the agriculture world in the summer time. By moving the clock up one hour in the spring daylight lasts  bit longer allowing the farmers to work in the fields longer. Likewise in the fall, the time changes once again moving back one hour. 

Fall back an hour in fall and Spring up an hour in Spring. .

It has been a few days since the change of daylight savings time. How are you doing?? While the time change affects adults it often affects children. They were used to the longer days and even though the days were starting to get shorter the hour change might have truly affected them. So how do we help them???

Now while it is too late to wean them into the time change it may be something you want to make a note of for the next occurance. Before the time change slowly start to change the child's sleep time by 10 to 15 minutes a day. When the next time change occurs in the spring move it earlier leading up to spring time change and later leading up to the fall time change.

Regular bedtimes along with a bedtime routine can help your child be ready to drift off to sleep. A bedtime routine may start as early as after dinner time to end at bedtime. IT is important that routine is stuck to even during time changes. This way you and your child agree.

In the spring time the hours will be longer and the sun will also shine longer. Your child's bedtime may occur before it is dark. If this happens pull the shades make the interior of the house and room darker so they can prepare for bed.
