Some behavior issues can be prevented, just by having your child get more sleep. Getting enough sleep also helps to prevent illness.
To promote a good night’s sleep, it is best to not have any screen time right before bed. Also, having a consistent bedtime routine can help. For instance, have the child bathe, brush teeth, read a book, and then light’s out!
