Bedtime at Our House/Prayers
Back in the dark ages when my son was small, we had a bedtime routine that we adhered to vigilantly. He knew what was expected each night and it helped calm him down which made bedtime easy and without any problems. At bedtime (specified at a specific time that was the same time every night) we always read a Bible story or short book in his bed. Afterwards we would practice a prayer he was working on by adding a new line each week. Before long he would know the prayer and could recite it by himself. This was a great way for our son to learn about God and to learn his prayers. It also was great family time that I will never forget.
