As the new school year approaches or, in some states, has already begun, parents trying to help their children adjust to a new school-based schedule struggle to get everybody out of bed. As much as students have earned their summer vacation, it can have disastrous effects on their regular routine to the point where students on vacation will rarely have a routine!

Helpful Tips to Help Parents Get Their Children out of Bed on Time

As enjoyable as this is during the vacation period, it doesn’t quite fit when school starts again, leaving many children struggling to get out of bed in the morning. If you are a parent facing this challenge, below is an article from The Tutoring Center, Arlington with tips which can help.

Leave Electronics in the Kitchen

If your children have electronic devices and they take them into the bedroom with them at night, then there is a good chance that instead of going to sleep and getting solid rest, they continue swiping and double tapping in bed. As you can guess, this prevents them from sleeping and, in turn, prevents them from waking up refreshed and ready to get out of bed. Instill a rule which requires all electronic devices to remain in the kitchen once your children go to bed. This tip has two primary benefits. The first is that it removes a distraction from their bedroom, helping them to fall asleep easier and faster and gets their body ready for the next day when their alarm sounds. The second is that, despite your confusion over the appeal, the need to get out of bed and make it to the kitchen to check any notifications they may have or respond to any messages they received can be a powerful motivator to get any child out of bed and into the kitchen ready for breakfast in the morning.

On the Subject of the Kitchen

A child’s growing body and a hungry morning stomach can be a great motivator for your child to get out of bed in the morning, and something which you can use as part of a reward system. Work out their preferred morning routine and make a deal with your children: If they get out of bed on time in the morning and make it to the kitchen at a time you designate, then you will agree that you will be ready and waiting to prepare their favorite or selected breakfast. If not, then preparing breakfast is up to them! Each new school year brings with more difficult and complex classes, often leading students to require more homework help. Help your student improve their grades and fill in any learning gaps with tutoring in Arlington.

Say Yes to Snoozing

Every adult knows just how hard it is to wake up to an alarm and almost-immediately get out of bed and start the day. Children also face this challenge, often resulting in them pressing the snooze button a few more times than they should until the very last minute. Accommodate for this by setting your child’s alarm 5 or 10 minutes earlier and encourage your child to press the snooze button just once while they stretch in the comfort of their bed and prepare themselves for the day ahead.

Say No to Napping

Everybody loves a nap! However, as refreshed as they can make your student feel, they can also work against them. If your child is used to napping during the day during the summer vacation then it’s likely that their bodies have become accustomed to the activity. This can work against them when school starts and they return home exhausted and ready to enjoy a nap. Unfortunately, this often wakes them up too much causing them to struggle to fall asleep easily when bedtime comes around mere hours later. Instead of napping before homework or dinner, have them assist you with preparing dinner, complete evening chores, or even help them find a hobby or active task they can enjoy in the lead up to their bedtime. By preventing napping, it further exhausts a tired mind and body, helping your child to fall asleep easily at bedtime and also to enjoy a restful sleep.
