||A small night-light and the child's toys are
few of the things that make them comfortable when they sleep. So ensure that these
facilities are made available to them.
||It is also common for children to get scared of
thunder and lightening at this age. They may also be scared and get up in the middle of
their nap due to bad nightmares. You must assure your child that they are safe and well
protected and then put them back to sleep. At the age of 6, if your child gets repeated
nightmares every night, it could be due to a particular reason. Try and talk to him and
help him if he has a problem, or else consult your pediatrician for help.
||Before the child sleeps, reading stories to
them at this age is extremely helpful. It helps to relax the child's mind and helps the
child unwind. In addition to that it imparts some knowledge to the child.
||Parents must be particularly strict about the
bedtime routine. There should be a fixed time for putting the child to sleep and also
waking them up. This ensures discipline.
