Myth: Calm means there is no time for getting "wound up".
Another friend of ours is the Vtech Giraffe Bike. Cassius especially enjoys "riding" it when I ride the stationary bike. He loves it that he can exercise with me. Bonus: it has educational games on it. He is learning to pedal a bike while he practices counting! When we all get moving early in the day, nap and bed time are much easier. Resting is more natural after we have really used our bodies!
How do you get your children moving early in the day to help them when it is time for necessary rest?
