Hi what time do you think an 11 year old should go to bed thanks

CoachJenK :

Hi. Welcome. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with more than 20 years experience working with individuals and families. I am also a mom of Twins.

CoachJenK :

Tell me about their schedule and what time they are going in now?

CoachJenK :

and what time does the child wake up in the morning?

Customer:

Hi She currently goes at 9.30 but is often unable to sleep and gets up at 7.30

CoachJenK :

and she is unable to sleep because it feels too early for her? does she eat sugar before bed? I was going to suggest that the bedtime be between 8:30 & 9 with a solid routine every night.

CoachJenK :

Dinner, bath or shower, book reading, calm time and then lights out

CoachJenK :

while also paying attention to what she is eating past 3-4pm as well.

CoachJenK :

Customer:

Customer:
