    Default Do you use a groclock or similar?

    DD is just 2 and while she settles easily (for now!) she is never keen to start the going to bed process of brushing teeth/bok etc. I'm wondering if a groclock or similar clock with day / night pictures might help show her it's time for bed?

    What age did you start using the clock and is it useful for going to bed as well as getting up at a reasonable time?

    I didnt use a groclock - but around 2 she could recognise numbers up to 12 ...

    so I bought a very basic digital clock, and the rule was when the 'first' number was 6 she could play quietly in her room, and when the 'first' number was 7 she could get up.

    It didnt always work (she was 2.5 .. so nothing is always going to work ) but it worked sometimes.

    We use a gro clock for our 4 year old. I can't remember how old she was when we started. I am not sure if it would be useful for the bedtime routine though. It certainly worked well for us in terms of reducing how often she got up at 5am!
