Stress-Busters for Parents
For me, the end of the day can be really tough because everyone is tired and my patience is thin! I get more stressed with kids at bedtime than at any other point. To me, the key to reducing the stress on everyone is starting the process of getting ready for bed as early as possible. Bathing your kids before dinner is one way to do this because with that out of the way, your kids can linger over dinner and books and you are less frantic thinking about what lies ahead.
Hope you enjoyed my video on why I favor baths before dinner, and comment with your advice on creating an easy bedtime routine.
