Bedtime can be a challenging part of the day for any parent. There can be immense pressure to get the kids in bed at a certain time and even more pressure for parents to have some adult time.
What if everyone could get what they wanted?
Having a relaxed bedtime can be beneficial for children as well as adults. With no struggle or negotiations, parents have more time to spend with their children or with each other. Many times at night I find my kids really get into their creative groove. When I had an imposed bedtime I would feel bad about interrupting them. Now I choose not to worry about exactly what time they are going to be asleep and when I notice their creative juices flowing at what used to be their bedtime, I pick up my crocheting, read a book or watch a movie with my husband.
It’s become such a joyful time for us.
