8 Annoying Child Habits That Are Actually Normal

Your baby goes to bed and usually wakes up at the same time every morning, but suddenly they start waking up at 3 AM and even crying. The more often it happens, the more difficult it is to put up with this habit.

What happens:

Sleep disorders usually occur because of emotions and new information received during the day. If a child doesn’t want to sleep, they’ve probably experienced intense emotions in the evening. And sometimes mastering new skills may also cause overexcited behavior: child psychologists think that kids want to try their new skills so much that they’re ready to sacrifice their sleep.

What to do:

First, try planning all your activities for the first part of the day. If your child still doesn’t want to sleep at night, don’t get crazy. Spend some time with your child, they’ll probably calm down in a few minutes and go back to bed.
