your Children to Sleep Easy W

E can all relate to that busy feeling in our mind that sometimes comes after a busy day. As adults we sometimes struggle to process the events of the day and feel our mind taking centre stage just as we try to fall asleep. Children often struggle to settle to sleep for the same reason and many parents face the challenge of bedtime as a result. With children struggling to drift off it can become difficult to get the benefits of a restful night.

The first book in Signe Rhode’s best-selling book series “WHY?”, entitled “WHY do I have to sleep?” deals with the challenge of bedtime and is inspired by her own personal experience as a mother of two, soon to be three, children. Signe wrote the book out of her own frustrations and challenges helping her children find calm to fall asleep at night: “This way of helping my own child feel both open and capable of finding calm has worked miracles for him at bedtime. It’s not only effective, but more importantly, it has helped us make nighttime much calmer and more loving instead of being the frustration we might otherwise experience at bedtime”, she shares.
