bedtime fears

Does your toddler or older child get nervous at bedtime? Are they afraid of the dark? Or of monsters in the closet? Or are they simply afraid, but unable to explain why or of what? This is common! Especially as kids’ imaginations start to run wild, or they see something scary in a book or […]

bedtime responsibilities

“I’m the only one who can put her to bed.” “I can’t go anywhere because she won’t sleep for anyone else.” “We have to choose between having friends over and an overtired baby, or missing out on time with friends because he’ll only sleep if I lay with him.”   Sound familiar? The good news […]
