A Holistic Approach to Solving Your Child's Sleep Problems
Updated: Nov 11, 2020
I hope you're ready, because I'm about to get a little bit philosophical on you with this post! For those of you who don't know, my background is in early childhood development and education. Between my degree in elementary education, my training to become a certified infant and child sleep expert, and the knowledge I've acquired as a parent, I think it's safe to say I have quite a grasp on these early years. That's not at all to say it's easy for me, but I am quite familiar with what best practices are when it comes to children ages 0-10.
As a parent, my goal is to raise my boys to be happy, healthy, independent, kind, and responsible individuals. I'm not here to make a bunch of mini-mes, although if my boys were to turn out at all like their father that would be pretty spectacular - he is a wonderful guy! As an educator, I have those same goals for the children in my classroom. As an expert in pediatric sleep, my goals are to help you help your child develop some of these very same attributes...both in general and when it comes to their sleep.
I believe some of the very first steps in reaching these attributes are forming healthy and loving attachments, and then providing plenty of opportunities to form independence from an early age.
