I'm a concerned mom of a 12-year-old preteen who's been having trouble sleeping lately. She often stays up late on her phone or playing video games, and as a result, she's been having trouble waking up on time for school. I'm worried that this lack of sleep could affect her health and academic performance, so I want to promote healthy sleep habits for her.
I've tried talking to her about turning off her devices at least an hour before bedtime, but she seems resistant to the idea. I'm wondering if there are any other tips or tricks that have worked for other parents in similar situations. How can I encourage my preteen to establish healthy sleep habits and get the restful sleep she needs? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
