Genius Parenting: Mom Tells Kids They Need To Stay Still To Charge Glow-In-The-Dark PJs
Parenting is hard. You need to get creative, and that's exactly what this Mom did.
Jessica D'Entremont was in a situation all parents can relate to. It's bedtime, but the kids are all hyped up, in no mood to sleep. So, this Mom came up with a genius trick: she told her daughters they needed to stay still to charge their glow-in-the-dark pajamas.
Here's what she wrote:
Looking for a way to keep your kids still?
Buy them glow in the dark PJs. Tell them they have to lie really still under the light to "charge" them.
I'm not even sorry. ?
To expand on the trickery I've started putting the PJs back into their drawer when they get dressed in the morning......unexposed to light all day they dim and do not glow in the dark when they tried to test me last night until they laid down again. Reinforcing the need to lie quietly under the light before bed.
In an interview with PopSugar, she explained:
The kids were jumping and running around, chasing each other with dragons they made out of Legos.
Both of my girls have sensory processing disorders and we had a very busy day. Our walk home threw them all off due to the crowds, noise, and the shopping.
They were about to start freaking out, so I whipped out the pajamas once we got home and told them if they lie super still and charge them they would glow in the dark.
The trick has actually helped the girls. Their Mom added:
We do it every day before bedtime now as a part of their sensory diet. We also use essential oils to help support sleep and calm so this is a great way to get some stillness.
Moms and Dads, go get some glow-in-the-dark PJs ASAP!
