Mindful Breathing (or Star Breathing, pictured below) – Teaching children to become aware, or mindful, of their breathing is a life-long skill for calming the body and noticing emotions. Books Breathe Like a Bear* and Breathe With Me* help families do this in a variety of ways.
The bottom line: with dedication and consistency, you CAN create the easy, connected bedtime of your dreams! If you’re struggling to do this without support, reach out for it! I’m here to help transform overwhelmed families from exhausted to confident, rested and connected! My full Toddler Package supports you to do this in 4 weeks.
There’s nothing I love more than hearing parents rave about the change they are working to create! Just recently I got an email from one of my Idaho clients thanking me, “For sure, this has been an improvement in my sleep. Most importantly, it has been a significant improvement in A’s sleep and behavior. He is getting more hours of sleep and he wakes up in a great mood. His growing independence around sleep is also reflected in other areas of his daily routine (getting dressed by himself and solving certain situations more independently).”
