After months of being home, staying up late and sleeping in, getting children up and ready on time for school may require more effort this year

TORONTO -- After months of being home, staying up late and sleeping in, getting children up and ready on time for school may require more effort than it did last year.

"A few days before school starts, a week if you can do it, start inching bedtime earlier and earlier and wake time as well about 15 minutes each day, and hopefully what that's going to do is, come that first day of school, they've already transitioned," she explained.McGinn said parents should also start waking their children up in the morning at the same time that they will have to get up once school resumes.

McGinn said changes to technology is especially important for those middle school and high school aged children who may have engaged in more screen time during COVID-19. "If you're forced to do that, that's OK, but clear away the clutter and the distractions before you go to bed, and then incorporate some tools that perhaps can help you sleep better," McGinn said. "So things like alarm clocks or blackout blinds or meditation apps, aroma therapy, any kind of tools that can help make bedtime that much easier and bring back that bedtime a little bit better.
