Amya came to me 18 months ago.
Just 3 years old, she was driving her family bonkers.
Bedtime was the biggest challenge, though Amya also struggled throughout the day with waiting.
When it was time for bed, Amya would ask for everything under the sun – a glass of water, then one more song, then another kiss goodnight, then to say goodnight to her older brother. All of these things were logical, but bedtime would drag on … and on … and on.
I took the parents through my Bedtime Routine Plan
– and evenings were transformed. Amya stayed in bed once she was tucked in. She might play quietly with a doll before drifting to dreamland, but her parents taught her that the rest of her requests had to wait until morning.
With a blissful bedtime routine in place, these parents gained several more hours to themselves each night. After Amya goes to bed, they have dinner together, as well as ample time to get work done and take care of things around the house.
Amya is benefitting, too. She’s better rested throughout the day. Her parents also find that she listens and waits better throughout the day, because she learned how to do it at bedtime.
The transformation these families experienced may seem miraculous. But this type of dramatic – and fast – change can be experienced by any family.
