About the Book
It’s 10pm, the golden hour. You’re tired after a long day. The dishes are done, homework finished, and the kids are finally asleep. But no sooner is your head on your pillow before you hear them coming…those feet down the hallway. They’re coming for you, coming for your rest, coming for your sanity, coming for your bed! You are losing sleep and patience, but the real concern is the effect on your child. Parents know that sleep is vital but often don’t know how to help their child become an independent sleeper without the bedtime battles.

Banish Bedtime Battles presents an easy method to get your school-aged child to sleep in their own bed throughout the night. With expert guidance, you’ll help your child develop critical coping skills essential to increasing their confidence and competence at bedtime (and beyond!). Armed with powerful parenting strategies presented in the book, you’ll be ready to use your personalized six-week plan to solve your child’s nighttime struggles. You’ll master specific skills to refine and maintain the new bedtime routine, with plenty of troubleshooting tips. Finally, you can enjoy some well-deserved peace, quiet, and sleep!
