Question #15: 
How do I get my kids to go to sleep?
Bedtime -- to a kid, it is a dirty word and for parents, it can be a nightmare! Putting a child to bed can be a lot of work and  there is no guarantee that all those steps will even keep the child in the bed for the entire night. But as parents, we often jump through crazy hoops to maintain our routines because we truly believe they work. Research has finally validated all those tired parents out there striving to create the perfect bedtime environment, by providing a link between regular bedtime routines and reduced rates of obesity later in life.
