Bedtime ‘most difficult for parents’
Many parents find bedtime the most difficult period of the day with their children, according to new research.
A study by Bounty Parenting Club revealed that 30 per cent of adults reported their kids throwing tantrums when they were due to go to sleep.
If the poll of 3,000 parents with offspring aged between one and four-years-old is indicative of a wider audience, it may be worth investing in children’s beds that are attractive to infants and promote good rest.
In addition, the survey indicated that youngsters named Rose and Corey are most likely to have a tantrum, while the best-behaved kids have titles such as Connie and Ewan.
The group’s Faye Mingo stated: “With all the extra pressures of modern life that parents face today it’s not surprising that many parents are feeling the strain when it comes to their children’s tantrums.”
Meanwhile parents may like to ensure their little angels are in bed early as a recent study suggested a possible link between a lack of adequate sleep and childhood obesity.
