How important are routines for children?

How to implement beneficial routines for your little ones and what to do if they donít take to them immediately  

Show date: 8th July  

Show time: 12pm  

Whether your child or children should have a routine or not is an age old debate amongst parents. Do children flourish under a clear routine or do you think itís better to follow your childís own natural rhythm and let them take the lead? 

Although predictability can be viewed as monotonous for adults, many parents believe that children flourish on repetition. Providing routines can also help kids deal with change. However some parents prefer to adopt a more varied attitude.

How do you strike the balance between child-led activities and consistency? What do you do if your child doesnít take to a routine? Do you feel like a failure if your kids donít follow the routine youíre trying to implement? At what age is having a routine most important?
