The Sleep Sense™ Method
The Sleep Sense™ Method was created out of a strong belief that healthy sleep habits make for healthy children. Research has shown how important sleep is for a child's development. A well-rested child is curious, energetic, happy, playful, and eager to learn. Unfortunately, many families do not prioritize sleep. On the contrary, many parents are willing to make a lot of sacrifices when it comes to their children's sleep. However, a sufficient amount of sleep is just as important for our children as a healthy and balanced diet.
The Sleep Sense™ method is a programme recognised and approved by the Association of Professional Sleep Consultants which takes into account both the individual character of each child and different parenting styles. The aim is to develop a personalised plan that is appropriate for each family. The bottom line is that you, as a parent, need to be comfortable with your new sleep plan in order for it to work for your child.
The plan I create for you is a personalised and detailled step-by-step guide that gives you everything you need in order to help your child to sleep better. I place a lot of emphasis on corresponding to your individual parenting style while at the same time taking into account your children's needs.
This is my approach:
1. Important Background Knowledge
I will first explain why sleep is so important for your child's well-being and how it works. This knowledge will motivate you to make changes to your child's sleep habits.
2. Individual Sleep Plan
You will then get an easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan that lets you make some choices about what is the right approach for your child. All children are different, and nobody knows your child better than you do. I encourage you to use your knowledge of your child to customize the sleep plan.
3. Support along the way
During the introduction of the new sleep plan, I am by your side, encouraging you and telling you what to expect. We will be in contact every day throughout the programme and work closely together so that we can immediately modify the plan if necessary and react to special circumstances.
