Product Review: Night Time Relief with the Good Night, Sleep Tight chart.

Sleep troubles are no stranger to our home. So, when Penny asked me if I wanted to review the Good Night, Sleep Tight chart from www.VictoriaChartCompany.com I said “YES!” A  few days later the chart arrived. We immediately hung the chart with all our other behavior charts, and the kids oo’d and ah’d.

 

I was glad to see that the chart’s night time routine was very similar to the one we were already using, so it would be easy to implement. My thought was that I would use the chart as a visual and incentive for my six year old son who has FASD and  ADHD. The chat is broken into two separate sections: (1) the top section is to be worked through as you go through your routine and, (2) the bottom part is for the morning to help your child reflect on their night’s rest. That section contains things like, “I did not call out.” and, “I stayed in my bed until it was time to get up.” Those are things he struggles with so I was excited about this visual tool.

 

Sadly though, my six-year-old would not participate in the use of this chart. He said it was for babies. Let me be clear: the chart is not babyish — however, when he decides something is, IT IS. I was a bit disappointed, but my three-year-old promptly told me this was his chart now. So I wrote his name at the top, and told him what all was on the chart. The morning after we hung the chart he was still in bed at 8:00 am. I found this very odd, and was afraid he was sick. Nope,  he said he wanted a sticker on his chart. {Score!} He was so cute putting stickers on there, and he really seemed to grasp what the chart was all about. It did help him cooperate with our bedtime routine. We spent a week away from home, and when we returned we picked up using the chart as if we had never stopped. My little guy loves this.

 

Now that you know how we feel about the chart, let me tell you a few details. The Good Night, Sleep Tight chart was designed to help promote good sleep habits, and to help mom and dad get a good night’s rest as well. The visuals provided on the chart are easy to follow, making this chart great for kids starting at age 2. The chart itself is 11 x 17 and laminated so the stickers they provide easy to remove. You can use the same chart week after week, unlike many of your printable charts which need to be re-printed every week. When your package arrives it will contain the chart, 48 gold start stickers, 130 smiley face stickers, supportive information, a dry erase marker, and sticky mounting pads. I find this chart very affordable.

 

I would highly suggest the Good Night, Sleep Tight chart if you are trying to get a good bedtime routine going, or if your child needs a visual aid and incentive at bedtime. Be sure to check out the many other charts created by www.VictoriaChartCompany.com to find one that is perfect for your needs.
