A Beach In The Bedroom
Older children can find it hard to get to sleep because they are worrying about things. Visual imagery and relaxation techniques can help take their minds off these worries. These techniques are best suited to children aged 4 years and up. This story can get them started as they imagine they are lying on the beach, with the sound of the waves lapping on the shore, and a warm breeze passing over them…
Pick Your Own Nose
Does Lucas really need Mum and Dad to always tuck him in at night?
Does he need Mum and Dad to do everything for him?
Hopefully Kip can help figure it out.
Marshmallow Puffins At The Window
Night time fears or worries are very common in children – especially children with a vivid imagination! These worries can stop children getting to sleep. Children can think there are monsters in their bedroom, be worried about noises outside the window etc. Learning to manage these fears and worries is really helpful for children – and their families. This story is a fun way to help children worry less at the start of the night. Parents can help children do this by listening to their worries and then gently reassuring them that many of their worries are not real – there are no monsters under the bed!
Slug Dad And Monster Mum
Early morning waking can be exhausting for families. Some children just seem programmed to wake up early and are full of energy... not like mum and dad! This is a story to help you manage early morning waking.
Has Dad Joined The Circus?
Lots of children find it hard to fall asleep at the start of the night on their own. They often want mum or dad to be there with them. This might be okay for parents at the start of the night but if a child wakes up many times over night, it can quickly become exhausting for mum and dad if they need to sit with their child again over night to get them back to sleep. When this is happening, everyone can end up tired and grumpy!
The Old Bedtime Pass Puncher
Some children get in and out of bed multiple times before falling asleep. We call these “curtain calls”! They want to tell you something, they want a drink, they want to go to the toilet...the list can go on! If your child does this, this story is for you! It takes you and your child through an evidenced-based technique called the Bedtime Pass. This technique helps to limit the number of times your child can come out of the room before bedtime.
