Developing effective sleep patterns is an important goal in early childhood. Many parents of toddlers and preschoolers recount nightly bedtime battles, dreading the process and anticipating struggles. If parents approach bedtime with anxiety and trepidation, these negative feelings become contagious and the child's level of arousal increases.
It is important to establish a bedtime routine that is consistent and that progressively calms the child's demeanor. A bath followed by reading a book in the lap of a parent is a good prescription for easy sleep transition.
With My Box of Dreams, we hope to add one more effective tool in this prescription for easy bedtimes. Transitional events like bedtime are inherently stressful for young children. They are in the dark and feel alone. These songs are designed to create a soothing atmosphere that helps the child make this transition to sleep calmly. Our wish is also that the songs become cues for parents to frequently send their child the key messages of love and hope.
This cd is a must-have for all parents - designed to help children:
- Soothe the transition into sleep
- Relieve anxiety of bedtime
- Strengthen the bond between parent and child
