Every kid has moments when they lose their cool, whine, pout or otherwise act like a brat.
But we all know at least one kid who seems to define the term perfectly.
They whine from the moment they get up in the morning, they throw a fit every time they don't get their way, they have to have things exactly how they want them... you've met one, I'm sure.
And for a lot of parents, when they see those traits in their own kids, the thought often crosses their mind, "Am I raising a brat?"
The uncomfortable truth is, you just might be. Bratty behavior is usually a result of overly permissive parenting.
The good news is that you have the power to fix it.
I'll tell you how to spot the signs that you might have a bratty kid on your hands, why it might be due to your parenting style, and what you can do to change it, on this week's episode of The Sleep Sense Show.
Twice a year, every year, the powers that be set out to sabotage all the hard work you've done to get your child sleeping on a predictable, reliable schedule.
Alright, technically speaking, that's not the actual intention of daylight saving(s) time, but that's pretty much all it accomplishes in the eyes of the parents of a youngster.
Hopefully, one day we'll just do away with this obsolescent practice, but until then I have some strategies that will help your little ones adjust to the time change and get back to normal as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
