With a little preparation, and understanding of what is going on biologically in your child’s body, and patience on your part, you can make the “shift” either the week before, or the week after, and help your entire family achieve the sleep you need…

The History of Daylight Saving Time

Saving Time (DST) is used to save energy and make better use of daylight. The idea was suggested in ancient times and later by famous scientists. History has shown that the phrase “spring forward, fall back” has been in use at least as far back as the early 20th century, with various start and end dates over the years. Currently, Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 am on the second Sunday of March and ends at 2 am, on the first Sunday in November.
