What to do when your anxious child can't get to sleep on their own

Frightened girl clings to mother at bedtime


This week I have made a video all about children who find it hard to fall asleep on their own, as this is an issue I know lots of children and their parents struggle with.  

It can cause conflict between parents about the best way to manage it, and can make bedtimes feel like a battleground!

In the video I share some tips and suggestions about how to help your child settle off to sleep peacefully, and gradually build the confidence to be able to fall sleep on their own.  


I hope you find it helpful.
