One way to get your toddler sleeps voluntarily

One word.

STICKERRRSSSSS!!!!

As cheesy and lame as it might sound, NEVER underestimates the power of a sticker.

Kan hari tu I ada complain pasal Cik Aiyu suka bertangguh waktu nak tido kan? Sekarang tidak lagi!

While going through that not-so-fun phase, I did some research online. Nak tanya mak, dulu kecik-kecik kita tido bawah ketiak, hehehe..  Anyway, a few of the articles I read, suggested a reward system to encourage them to go to bed voluntarily. Kalau kita yang dah tua bangka ni, orang kata rasuah, hahaha…

Since kids generally love stickers, that can be one of the reward. Jangan kata budak, mak budak pun suka main sticker, hehehe.. So we tried, not that we have anything to lose. Rumah ni bersepah sticker. Kalau rasuah kasi barang kemas tu lain la kan. Mak tak mampu you!

The first night, it was kinda vague. We were not too sure how to introduce the system, and Cik Aiyu was not too sure with our intention.

“Ok, if Aiyu sleeps well tonight, tomorrow morning you can have a ‘good sticker’”

Silent.

Ok, good night.

She did call for us once or twice, but that was about it.

So the next morning, we gave her the “good sticker”. Obviously she was happy about it. Since we have no proper chart to stick it on, she pasted in on her puzzle box.

The following night, surprisingly she did better at sleeping.

Apparently she gets the concept, because the first thing she asked for when I went to get her was, “Mommy, good sticker”.

To support her good behavior, we got her a chart.



Kepada sesiapa yang ada masalah lebih kurang, selamat mencuba!
