I. AmSoExhausted.

And I feel so guilty for feeling exhausted because I knew that parenting would be exhausting. So, I remind myself that I have a healthy child that I love unconditionally. Sleeping or not.

But, still, I sometimes hope that my beautiful child will gift herself a relaxing bedtime or maybe a few hours sleep. 

It's a vicious exhausted-guilty-anxious cycle, and I think that there's only one way out - sleep training - but what I know of sleep training doesn't make me feel good, makes me question my parenting instincts, and leaves me confused.

I *know* that the family life I want for my children is about wholehearted trust, love, and support... not force.

Sound familiar? Then we are your parenting community.

We believe in your intuition, and we know that you can follow it while inviting sleep. 

Family relationships and emotional connection helps children of all ages feel relaxed and connected at bedtime. This is what The Sleeping Child focusses on. We give you the support and listening you need to peacefully and respectfully encourage your child's sleep as he matures. 

If you ever feel any of the following, you will benefit from enrolling in Parenting for Sleep:

  • you are exhausted, but are overwhelmed by or don't believe in sleep training (please see our blog to learn how we feel about traditional sleep training)
  • you sometimes get frustrated with or confused by your child's sleep behaviors
  • you have wavering confidence in navigating your and your child's emotions around sleep
  • you want to feel hopeful, positive, or peaceful about bedtimes again
  • you know there is more to parenting than the status quo

Parenting for Sleep invites sleep by:

  • reading your child's behaviors
  • supporting your child's cognitive and emotional development
  • navigating your child's emotions
  • relieving separation anxiety with connection and play
  • and, yes, by trusting your mama (and papa!) instinct

*** Please note that reflection on your parenting actions and reactions is the foundation of Parenting for Sleep. Our program is not for you if you are looking for a "quick fix" without making the honest effort to reflect on your parenting life. ***
