Basic needs seems so basic, but they are the foundation for all things sane in parenting! I’m not here to preach to you or tell you how to run your house. I am here because I care and through my experience have witnessed how far South things can go if these needs are not met. The basic needs I’m speaking of are healthy nutrition and healthy sleep. The two of these together will help create a happier and healthier family as a whole. Today I am going to focus on sleep and reasons why getting your kids to bed earlier will be the starting point for you creating a more positive parenting outcome.
hi parents and followers! happy new year and i hope you all had a fantastic holiday season! we are finally getting back into our usual rhythm of school and activities. where does the time go? i wish i could slow it down, but unfortunately i don’t have the power. although, i do have the power to help you sleep train your little ones! i read an article this morning from the Globe and Mail newspaper titled “secrets of a cold-hearted ‘sleep trainer.'” it was a very interesting article and one that left me wishing i could write the author back. wishing i could tell her it was possible and that everything would be okay. that you can sleep all night and so can your babies/kids. its not an impossible feat. it is something everyone can do with commitment and consistency. i’m not saying it’s always easy and it is sometimes easier for some than others. some are left feeling pleasantly surprised and others struggle through it, but end with success. with my help, support, and assistance, together you can have success! i’m positive!
