Why is it Important to Continue a Consistent Sleeping Schedule During the Summer?

It's important to keep a consistent sleeping schedule for children because it's important to their development. In the summertime, it may be tempting to allow your child to go to bed later but that's not necessarily a good thing. In fact, enforcing habits like going to bed earlier can improve your child's behavior. This habit alone can help your child get along better with other children and reduce their chances of acting out. Keeping a bedtime routine and making sure your child is still going to bed at a decent time are two ways to continue their sleeping schedule into the summer.

Things You Should Know About Firework Safety. 


Fourth of July is arriving soon!  Remember that fireworks can be hazardous to children. Activities like sparklers can get up to 2,000 degrees in temperature and increases the chance of an injury.  That's why it's important to follow safety measures:

  • Never leave children alone with fireworks.
  • Give yourself enough time to escape after lighting a firework.
  • Keep a bucket of water near.
  • Never relight fireworks that didn't light.
