"Being overprotective all day creates dependency. Abandoning a dependent child in their room at night, creates panic."           Dr. Shefali

Toddlers need a different approach to sleep, what worked as a baby won't work anymore! Personalized services and parent coaching is designed specifically for toddlers. While nurturing and supporting your toddler, we will explore positive parenting strategies. Shifting the paradigm towards conscious parenting and emotionally supportive solutions that provide safe limits. Establishing new routines, mastering the art of connectedness, promoting autonomy, blancing choices and allowing exploration within safe limits. An exciting age for little ones but also a scary time as they discover how small, dependant and weak they are. Managing predictability and creating safety is the key to success. In order to successfully solve your sleep issues, we must consider daytime parenting strategies and apply the skills needed to navigate sleep challenges now and down the road. 

It takes more than just sleep science to get your toddler to sleep at night. Toddlers are exploring the world and love to have a voice, it's up to us to give them a voice and make sure they feel heard and understood. Containment for toddlers gives them comfort and setting loving limits help them feel safe. I like to think about the invisible walls, the boundaries you cannot see and how to use your emotional presence to create them. Through positive affirmation and mindful parent child interactions, the goal is to promote emotional wellness, improve connectedness and bridge the gap towards deeper understanding. Together we can build foundations, teach emotional wellness, balance the needs, empower your child, nurture them and still give your child a voice when it’s appropriate for them to feel a sense of autonomy and control.

Consultations are needed to review your situation and customize a sleep plan specific for your child with parent coaching support that provides you with easy access and answers to questions as they come up along the way. When implementing a sleep plan, all aspects of your toddler or pre-schooler's day are considered. Play, free time, discovery, school, the village of caregivers, nutrition and emotion. Sleep associations, sleep history, fears, anxieties, environment and cues.  Careful assessment of activity and developmental stages are needed to be certain nothing else is going on. Positive connections and leadership for parents still falls under the philosophy of respectful and gentle parenting with appropriate limits.

The interactions throughout the day and details of bedtime cooperation are always discussed ahead of time. Sometimes solutions are hidden in the daytime behavior or expression of needs. It's hard to see the forest for the trees when you're the one in the situation, I've worked with many pediatriacians, surgeons, child psychologists and therapists to solve sleep challenges. Along with behavioral and biological changes, it is also important to consider your emotions, stress levels, family dynamics, your work situation and your relationships.

Poor sleep is the result of either an unbalanced schedule or an unbalanced child. Through my program you will have the opportunity to meet with a parenting psychologist if you choose, to discuss these issues further should they be necessary. Parents influence the child far more then you can imagine. Having the support of Dr. Jessica Escott to review your personal situation is an asset to the program. She provides a free 30min consultation to every client at your request. If you require further sessions with Dr. Jessica Escott, we can arrange that through her office.  Together we will find the solution and help your child become well-balanced, healthy, happy and successful, not only with sleep but with behavior, emotional growth, learning, and development!!
