You should be strict about deadlines for sleeping and form a proper routine for your kid—be it on school nights or holidays. You should convince yourself to say no to your kids and convey the importance of sleep with bedtime stories or healthy conversations. Afterall, we all know ‘Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise’.

Skipping meals

Ensure that your child consumes food at regular intervals. You should coax your child gently if your child denies eating certain meals. Say no to your kids to skip the morning breakfast. It forms the most important meal of the day that fills the body with required nutrition.
