The benefits of routines for children
Routines help children to feel safer and help develop a sense of space and time
It is imperative for a child to feel safe. Being able to predict what is coming next, also allows the child to have control of their activities, which helps build a sense of space and time, another fundamental skill that would reflect in an adult who has excellent time management, is well-organized, and is able to conceptualize their thoughts both in their social or professional interactions.
Why my baby won’t sleep through the night?
Many parents feel frustrated because their children do not sleep through the night and/or alone, although this is normal with newborns and infants. Sleep through the night is a learning process, a habit that also needs to be developed. It takes time at the beginning for a baby to develop their sleeping patterns, and then it is with the help of the grownup to decode those patterns, make a few adjustments if necessary and help consolidate them.
