Two children, one sleeps more and the other sleeps less. When they grow up, the difference in brain is obvious.

My daughter is an out-and-out "little troublemaker", and the most annoying thing every day is sleeping. She seems to have endless energy, and she is always full of energy. On this day, when we urged our daughter to go to bed early, a question suddenly popped up in her little head: "Mom, why do we need to sleep?" Faced with her daughter's question, as a mother, I don't think about it. "Because we need to rest." "Why can sleep give us a rest?" Then my daughter released the posture of breaking the casserole and asking to the end, and I couldn't say why. I don’t know if the majority of parents and friends have encountered similar questions, and I wonder if they have ever thought about why we always want our children to go to bed early and get up early? In fact, the reason why we feel tired and yawn again and again when night falls. It's because our bodies secrete a substance called "melatonin" at that time, which helps us fall asleep. In the process of sleeping, our bodies and brain organs have a chance to fully relax. For children, they need more sleep every day than adults, and sleep is even more important for them. And the fact that children sleep is, for parents, "several joys and sorrows". One of my college classmates is the kind of parent who doesn't need to worry about the child's sleep at all. Her child likes to sleep since it was born in the womb, and every time the fetal heart rate monitoring must be done several times to pass. As early as during pregnancy, she had a hunch that her child was a "little slacker". Sure enough, after the child is born, he especially likes to sleep, and the quality of sleep is also very good. On the other hand, my daughter is just the opposite. The fetal heart rate monitoring during pregnancy is "one-off". After her daughter was born, she was even more energetic and belonged to the "household with difficulty sleeping". She often sang happily at ten o'clock in the evening without any sleepiness. These two types of children can be said to give parents a completely different parenting experience. Some parents don't care about the fact that their children go to bed late, and it is often seen that some children are still playing outside late at night. Parents may think that their children are the type that sleep less, have more energy every day, and don’t need to worry. According to research, there is a significant difference in brain development between children who "sleep more" and children who "sleep less". In the same twins, Dr. Wilson found through research that the children who slept more were more intelligent than those who slept less. Children who slept more had obvious advantages over their siblings in terms of learning ability and comprehension ability. Dr. Wilson's research shows that getting enough sleep is crucial for a child's brain development. In layman's terms, the results of this study are that children who slept more were wiser. Seeing this, maybe parents whose children have sleep problems will start to get anxious. After all, parents always hope that their children can have a smart brain, which is a very important advantage for children. In fact, after knowing the results of this study, I also fell into deep anxiety, who had a "minor disturbance" at home. Since sleep is so important to children, how can we make them sleep well? The following three "little tricks" are summed up on the basis of my study and practice, and they are very effective for dealing with "sleep difficulties" at home. Parents who have the same troubles as me, let us try it together and help our children change.

Teach you three tricks, children can sleep peacefully every day, and mothers can also worry about

Let sleep be full of "ceremony" in children In the process of establishing a sense of order, parents must learn to make sleep full of "a sense of ritual". This sense of ritual does not need to be consistent with each family, and parents can arrange it themselves. The bedtime ritual in our house is that when it’s time to go to bed, the lights must be turned off. Some children are very resistant to turning off the lights, don't worry, my baby is the same, she will cry when she turns off the lights at first. At this time, parents can use mobile phones or speakers to play a soothing music or interesting story to ease the baby's resistance, and slowly let the children accept the "ritual sense" of turning off the lights on time before going to bed every day. Fully release the child's "electricity" The energy of each child is different, just like us adults, some people can work all the time, like a spinning top, without getting tired. And some people feel tired at every turn and need to take a break before continuing to work. The same is true for children. For energetic children, if parents force their children to sleep, it will cause their children to have negative emotions. At this time, parents can consider doing everything possible to consume their children's "electricity" during the day. For example, you can take children to outdoor activities more, or buy some physical toys and equipment for children to play. No matter what method you use, try your best to let the child "release" his energy completely. After the "power" is exhausted, the child will naturally want to sleep at the time point, and the child's sleep quality will be improved accordingly. Control the duration of naps. Some children become "night owls" at night, and they refuse to fall asleep. This is actually related to their long naps. Parents need to make a nap plan for their children according to their children's situation. If the child takes a nap for 2 hours, is very excited at night and does not sleep for a long time, then parents should plan to shorten the nap time of the child to 1 hour. Parents can also consider canceling their child’s nap plan if their child only takes a 1-hour nap and has difficulty falling asleep at night. For some children, without naps, they sleep better at night. Parents need to make adjustments flexibly according to the situation of their children and control the duration of their children's naps.

Write at the end

With the above three "little tricks", I believe that parents will be more confident when dealing with "sleep difficulties" at home . Parents, have you learned? (The pictures in this article are all from the Internet, if there is any infringement, please contact to delete)
