“I am beyond exhausted and I find it difficult to remain calm.”
When I hear this from parents, it breaks my heart.
That “not sleeping at night” really impacts us.
When you can’t sleep at night, of course, you are going to feel overwhelmed, anxious, and uncertain about what to do next.
It is quite logical then, to not be able to remain calm, cool, and collected.
Not only are you not sleeping at night, but you are worried too.
Worrying about why your child is struggling.
Wondering what the lack of sleep is doing to your child’s development.
Questioning your own skills at helping your child sleep.
It’s all there.
And when the crying begins again, or the protests start up, or the toddler limp body meltdown happens in the middle of your Zoom call …
Yes, it can be difficult to remain calm.
And that is where I come in.
I support parents who aren’t sure how to stay calm.
I support parents who are feeling defeated.
I support parents who really need to get some sleep.
I support parents who know their child needs good sleep too, but can’t figure out how to get there.
