The Sleep Book for Tired Parents
For the "walking weary", those parents who just cannot get their kids to bed, this is the survival guide to recommend. An experienced parent educator, Rebecca Huntley discusses kids who can't sleep through the night and those who are overwhelmed by nightmares. She introduces three popular "sleep solutions": the Family Bed, Cry-It-Out and Teaching in Small Steps. She explains how parents can modify these options to fit their family values and style. She also emphasizes that there is no single "right" way to handle sleep problems. Each family has the right to make its own choices, according to its values, situation and what works best.
