In Smart Parenting’s How Po Series Episode 4, entitled Become Your Child’s Best Teacher! How To Do Preschool At Home, Thumby Server-Veloso, founder and director of Thinkers and Toddlers Unlimited school, shared an example of a daily routine that works best for the whole family.
Kids need routine, and one crucial aspect of it is sleep. Kids need sleep to rest, let their bodies heal, and be ready for another day. Also, the younger the child, the more hours of sleep he needs, including nap time.
When kids are asleep, parents finally have the time to get some chores or work done, or hopefully, get the me-time they so desperately and deservingly need. It’s one of the perks of having kids sleep early.

Technology today has forced us to have fast-paced lives, connecting instantly with one another through sending messages, photos, and videos right on the palm of our hands. Thanks to smartphones, tablets, and social media, we can consume these information in bulk.
