road trips with kids

Road trips with kids…even though we’ve done it several times, it’s still feels like quite the ordeal each time.

When I work with families, I help them adjust schedules, routines, and environments, and we walk through a plan that will teach their little one to fall asleep independently; we work on making behavioral and environmental changes that lead to success!
