  • Does 30 mins of reading before bed help to calm down your kids ?

  • I’m big on challenges. So, I’m always coming up with something. Sometimes reading is the only way to calm kids down at the end of the day. So, I incorporate one hour of reading before bed!

    • Thanks for sharing with us Eva! I will try to extend our reading routine little by little and see how we do.
