“…and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”
~ Benjamin Franklin
And it also makes kids learn better!
I have always been a huge fan of early bedtime for children so I feel reassured.
Now I can say with certainty that my kids go to bed early not just so I can have my own evening peace and quiet (as a Consistently Substandard Slacker Mom, I’ll confess that has always been my main reason for being a bedtime drill sergeant). According to the study, by sending them up to their rooms earlier than most of their friends, I am actually helping them learn more easily at school too.
