August 13, 2010, Newsletter Issue #43: Respecting Your Child's Schedule

Tip of the Week

Most young children by a few months of age have either adapted to their parents' schedules or have created their own internal timeclock. If something is going on that keeps them from following the structure that gives them comfort and allows them to always know what to expect from their day, they begin to feel insecure and sometimes even act out and misbehave. Children thrive when their minds and bodies cooperate. They need to eat and have their naps, as well as go to bed at the same time every day, or the next day you might notice a difference in their attitudes. Provide consistency and you will encounter fewer behavioral problems. The children you care for will also appreciate your respect of their need for stability and predictability. You will earn their trust and their love.
