Welcome to the Nighttime Talk Blog – the place where parents, stepparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, family members, and caretakers go for ideas about what to discuss with children at bedtime.
Why is nighttime talk so important? A consistent bedtime routine can have a positive impact on many aspects of a child’s life, such as that child’s health and sleep habits. When the bedtime routine includes a book and a conversation, it supports the child’s language and literacy development and relationship with the person involved. A simple discussion about the day’s events or the story you read together reinforces your presence in the child’s life.
Each month, I’ll publish a blog post that includes bedtime conversation starters and a book recommendation. Whether you’re looking to start a bedtime routine from scratch or just want to grow your relationship with the child in your life, I encourage you to subscribe.
See you next time on the Nighttime Talk Blog.
