A Happier Child With Predictable Schedules

Children have more problems behaving when they are
tired or hungry. Here's what you can do to make sure
your child is well-fed and well-rested:

-- Have a set routine you follow every day. Young children
feel much more secure and behave better when they
know what to expect.
-- Make nap time the same time every day.
-- Provide meals the same time each day and healthy
snacks such as fruit, vegetables, cheese, bread and milk.
-- A predictable schedule will insure your child doesn't get
too tired or too hungry, which can trigger a "meltdown" in
even the most relaxed of children.
