Bedtime struggles are so common that almost seventy percent of parents report that their children have sleep problems at least a few nights a week, according to the National Sleep Foundation.
Enter Dr. Lynelle Schneeberg, a behavioral sleep psychologist, an assistant professor at the Yale School of Medicine and the Director of the Behavioral Sleep Program at Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Better known as the Bedtime Doctor, she has helped countless families solve their children’s sleep problems. Now Dr. Schneeberg is sharing her decades of experience in Become Your Child's Sleep Coach, every parent's guide to better sleep for their children and the whole family.
While there are plenty of resources available to establish healthy sleeping patterns for infants and babies, there’s very little guidance available for school-age children. Become Your Child's Sleep Coach tackles the kinds of sleep issues that preschoolers and elementary school kids have with much-needed, straightforward advice.
Dr. Schneeberg addresses the two biggest mistakes that parents make with their school age-children (staying with them until they fall asleep and allowing too many “callbacks and curtain calls” after lights out) and then teaches parents how to help their children become great sleepers with her five-step guide.
The book also includes worksheets parents can use for each of these steps, a printable chart with Dr. Schneeberg’s proven 5B Bedtime Routine, and advice on how to use Bedtime Tickets to manage those extra “callbacks and curtain calls” after lights out. Dr. Schneeberg helps parents teach their children to fall asleep independently at bedtime and stay in their own beds all night long.
