Should Parents Ever Lock a Child in a Room to Fall Asleep?
Kristen Bell Uses This Controversial Parenting Hack to Put Her 3-Year-Old to Bed
Kristen Bell may be one of the stars of theBad Momsfranchise, but that doesn't mean she actually is one IRL. However, the mother of two realizes that some of her parenting methods, particularly what she does to put her 3-year-old to bed, may be considered "controversial" with other moms.
At the premiere for her upcoming IMAX movie,Pandas, Bell admitted that she and her husband Dax Shepard have been dealing with a restless toddler at home.
"My 3-year-old [Delta] decided to stop sleepingabout nine months ago," Bell shared, according to . "And every night, when we put her to bed, she turns the lights on, which annoys the 4-year-old [Lincoln], and she will move furniture, and she bangs on the door with different, hard toys. We switched the door knob. We turned the lock on the outside."
Locking a child in their bedroom is not a tactic that many parents would choose to follow or some experts recommend, including The Nationwide Children's Hospital. "Locking the door may be scary for your child," the Ohio-based pediatric hospital states on their website. "The goal is to teach your child to stay in bed, not punish or scare him."
However, the trick seems to be working for Bell and Shepard. And Bell assured the press that it's only a temporary fix.
"I'm sorry, I know that's controversial," she said at the red carpet event. "But we lock it when she gets in there, and we stand outside and say, 'We love you, we will talk to you in the morning, but now, it's time for sleep.' And after about 10 minutes, she'll wind herself down.
