How does a 4-year-old child fall asleep? Habit, reflex or problem, preschoolers

I have two daughters. They are already 3 and 5. All these years I observe how they fall asleep in different ways. And something tells me, it’s not just that one is a lark, and the second is an owl. In something else there is a catch …

Sonya

From infancy Sonya fell asleep heavily. Watching this sight was unbearable. It seemed that I directly felt how sleep reduced her arms and legs, but she could not let go of reality and fall asleep.

Husband wrote off this feature on heredity, I also fall asleep hard. But she could not appear at such an early age?

Already in 3 years, we stopped laying her during the day, so that she would sleep more easily at night. At that age it helped. But a year later, the lack of daytime sleep had no effect on the behavior of falling asleep, and the daughter again began to lie down for hours and …

I wanted to write to dream, but she caught herself in time. I do not even know what is going on in her head while she is lying there and whispering something.

He answers my questions that he does nothing and does not think about anything.

Sanya

I already wrote that I taught Sanka to fall asleep quietly at 9 pm. And I must admit, up to three years, she piously honors the tradition. Already at eight, if we are visiting, wondered when we go home. She falls asleep in the car, and her husband carries her to bed in his arms.

When we pack them at home, she lulls her dolls, then asks the whole house: Mom, can I sleep? And cut off without a smooth transition, once and for all.

But, as you may have guessed, her question must be answered positively. And if she does not receive an answer, she will repeat this phrase for a very long time.

Once I was in the bathroom when my daughter started asking if she could sleep. To my arrival, she burst into tears and seemingly forgot about the dream. But as soon as I said the traditional sleep, I fell asleep.



The process of falling asleep – habit, reflex or heredity?

How to explain this behavior of children while falling asleep? What happens in these little heads when they touch the pillow?

If you follow the theory of psychologists that daytime overexcitement does not give normal sleep at night, it turns out that my Sonya is always over-excited. But it can not be permanent? Do the child have calm days and fatigue?

If we talk about the fact that Sani has an artificial reflex – falling asleep at the same time, it is not clear where the habit of asking came from, can she sleep if she was put to bed 20 minutes ago?

Or maybe a problem?

Would you care? On the one hand, I sort of got used to it.

And on the other hand, I don’t know how to help the elder and how to wean the younger one to ask for permission to fall asleep (this, by the way, is the only reason she asks for permission).

She asked a psychologist in kindergarten, but she only replied that they would outgrow. And once again confirmed that the kids – the biggest mystery of nature (as if I myself do not see it).

What do you think I should be worth the alarm?
