[OUT Q=about 9 hours of sleep]


Here are some tips for improving sleep: Maintain a regular bed and wake-up time for your child, even on the weekends. Create a sleep environment that's dark, quiet, and cool, with a temperature between 68 and 70 degrees. Don't allow your child to eat two to three hours before bed time. They should avoid caffeine after the afternoon because it's a stimulant.
Long naps during the day should also be avoided.
