As a mum of two and a sleep consultant, I truly believe that healthy sleep habits make for healthy children. A well-rested child is curious, energetic, happy, playful and eager to learn.
When parents entrust me as their child’s ‘sleep guide’, either through one-to-one consultations or seminars/webinars, they are placing a great deal of trust in me. I want to let you know that I take this responsibility very seriously.
While most books and programs dealing with child sleep issues take philosophical stands (based largely around the issue of “crying it out”), I believe that your child’s sleep is more important than my personal views on this subject. That’s why I place so much emphasis on accommodating different parenting styles. The bottom line is that you, as a parent, need to be comfortable with your new sleep plan in order for it to work for your child.
