  • Hi there. My children are 4,8, and 13 now. The best way to get them to sleep is set a specific bedtime that will be followed every night without exception. My kids are in bed by 9 p.m.(yes even the 13 year old). Do not allow TV watching while falling asleep, as it keeps their attention for even longer which keeps them up beyond bedtime. A warm bath and story will help them unwind also. Keep a dim night light lit in their room and do not linger after they are tucked in. If they get out of bed, walk them back to their room. Be firm and consistent about them going to bed at the desgnated time. At first it may take them some getting used to, but they will; it shouldn't take long if you are consistent. Good luck to you dear and sweet dreams to your angel babies. :)
