The Sleep Sense™ Method was created out of a strong belief 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-on-one consultations or seminars, they are placing a great deal of trust in me, and 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 the Sleep Sense™ Method places 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!
My approach to improving your child's sleep is pretty simple:
- I'll give you honest information about WHY sleep is so important for your child's well-being. This will give you all the motivation you need to make changes to your child's sleep habits.
- I'll lay out an easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan that lets you make some choices about what is the right approach for your child. All children are different, and nobody knows your child better than you do. I encourage you to use your knowledge of your child to customize his or her sleep plan.
- I'll show you how to measure success. No, you shouldn't expect your child to sleep 12 uninterrupted hours on the first night -- although it does happen! I'll tell you what you should expect along the way...
