How To Get Your Child To Sleep Through The Night, Every Night.
If your child isn't sleeping through the night, the chances are neither are you. But help is at hand from one of Britain's leading child psychiatrists. Childcare expert Professor John Pearce has developed a highly successful baby and toddler sleep management programme - with a proven success rate - that takes the agony out of bedtimes and explains how a calm and peaceful sleep routine is possible with any child from an early age.
- Is there a right time for bed-time?
- What is the normal sleeping pattern for babies and children?
- What can be done to prevent a 2-year-old having a tantrum at the words "Time for bed"?
- How do you help your child to cope with nighttime fears?
Regular sleep patterns are an essential part of normal childhood development. But how do you cope if your child is hyperactive, or your baby cries through the night? John Pearce explains to hassled parents how sleep rhythms alter over time, what sort of behaviour is natural at various ages, when to be strict and when to make allowances, when to turn a deaf ear to tears - and how to recognise the important signs of illness, distress, fear or anxiety.
Full of clear guidelines for positive and construction action, this practical and effective book is a godsend for parents of children from 0-5 and beyond.
