Title: Getting Children to Bed on Time


1
Getting Children to Bed on Time
  • Laura A. Riffel, Ph.D.

2
Do you suffer from CRS? Cant Remember Sleep?
  • From early on children learn that it is much more
    rewarding to stay up than go to bed on time.
  • Parents and Teachers suffer the consequences of
    children who do not go to bed on time.
  • Dr. Riffel has taken philosophies from Love and
    Logic, Positive Behavior Support and Super Nanny
    and tied them together to create a fail safe way
    to get some sleep yourself because your children
    will be tucked in bed safe and sound and on time.

3
Setting a Bed Time
  • Most parents wait until very late to start moving
    their children toward bedtime.
  • Here are some guidelines
  • 1-3 years old 13-14 hrs a day
  • 3-6 years old 10.5-12 hrs a day
  • 7-1210-11 hrs a day
  • 13-18 8 ¼ -9 ½ hrs a day
  • Do the math- if your 6 year old child (who does
    not nap) must rise at 7 a.m. then they should be
    in bed at 7 p.m.
  • Most of the parents I know say their children go
    to bed at 9 or 10 p.m.

Make a chart
  • Take a picture of the clock in your house so the
    child knows what the clock looks like at bedtime.
  • Post this on the refrigerator.
  • Put a picture of Mom Dad being proud of the
    child with a affirmation statement about going to
    bed on time.

Bedtime for Bonzo
Mommy Daddy are so proud of Bonzo when she goes
to bed on time.

Important Ingredient
  • Dont wait till 800 to start getting your child
    ready for bed each evening.
  • If bedtime is 800 then turn off the TV or
    Computer at 720 and say something like this
  • Do you want to go to bed now, or thirty minutes
    from now?
  • Any red blooded child will say 30 minutes from
    now and thats when you make deposit number one.
  • Say, Good choice.
  • Turn back on whatever they were doing and go
    about your business.

6
At 750 say this
  • Do you want a piggy back ride to bed or a horsey
    back ride to bed?
  • (not recommended if your child is 16)
  • Whatever your child replies, you say,
  • Good choice.
  • Give them a ride to bed.

7
When you get down to the bedroom, say
  • Do you want to wear your blue, yellow or red
    pajamas?
  • Whatever your child says, you say, Good Choice.

8
Brushing Teeth
  • You are getting the hang of it. Here we go. Do
    you want to brush your teeth with the yellow
    toothbrush or the blue toothbrush?
  • Whatever the child says, you say, Good Choice.

9
Toothpaste????
  • Do you want striped toothpaste or sparkle
    toothpaste?
  • Whatever the child says, you say Good choice.

10
Do you want me to sing
Whatever the child says, you say, Good choice.
  • Twinkle, Twinkle little star or Eency Weency
    Spider while you brush your teeth?

11
Do you want to drink your water from a cup or a
glass?
  • Whatever they say, you say, Good choice.

12
Do you want to hear one bedtime story or two?
  • Whatever they say, you say, Good Choice.
  • PS- Get a book with lots of very short stories in
    it.

13
Prayers
  • Do you want to say your prayers by yourself and
    I listen or do you want me to say them with you?
  • Whatever they say, you say, Good choice.

14
Do you want the music on or the music off?
  • Whatever they say, you say, Good choice.

15
Lights on or Lights off?
  • Whatever they say, you say, Good Choice.

16
Door open or door closed?
  • Whatever they say, you say, Good choice.

17
Review the Night
  • Label all the appropriate behavior
  • I like the way you
  • Chose
  • A piggy back ride
  • Your blue pajamas
  • The red toothbrush
  • The sparkle toothpaste
  • The water from a cup
  • The bedtime story
  • The prayer with mom
  • The music on
  • The lights off
  • The door open
  • Sleep tight, see you in the morning.

18
  • About the time you hit the door, most kids will
    say something like. Oooh, but I love you. I
    want to stay up with you.
  • This is where you get to make your withdrawal.
  • All those statements of Good choice, those were
    deposits into the childs head.
  • Now that you have made deposits, you can make a
    withdrawal.

19
  • Turn around and smile at your child. (After all
    they are looking very cherubic at the moment.
    This happens to be a look that has worked for
    them before.)
  • Say this, Hey, whos been making all the choices
    tonight? (Now you know why I told you to say
    that every time.) Youve been making all the
    choices. Dont I get a chance once in a while?
    Thanks for understanding. See you in the
    morning. Walk out the door and head down the
    hall. (This is called expected compliance where
    you assume the child will do what you just told
    them to do.)

20
What will most kids do at this point?
  • A. Go to bed without a sound.
  • B. Wet their pants
  • C. Follow you out the door and beg.

21
Most important key Make no eye contact.
  • Pick your child up and carry them back and set
    them on their bed and walk back out.
  • Never look them in the eye or say any words.
  • Just keep picking them up, carrying them back,
    setting them on their bed, and walking back out
    the door.

22
The child comes out
23
You take them back.
24
The child comes out
25
You take them back.
26
Repeat the process until your Child stays in bed.
27
Do not decide to start this on a Sunday
night, when you have a big meeting in the morning.
28
You and your child will be sleeping like a baby
in no time.
