This episode is all about answering a few of those “Sticky Questions” I am always asked. But let me ask you one first… Why are parents so quick to comfort their child when crying, yet they themselves are willing to go so long with uncomfortable, sleepless nights? How long is too long for a child to cry? How long is too long for a parent to finally cry out for help?  Join me as I share with you my sleep philosophy that has helped hundreds of families resolve those exhausting sleep habits.

ou might be wondering how my clients feel about me exposing all of their dirty laundry for the world to see… You are probably asking… -What if I become a client? Will she share about me? -Isn’t the client-consultant relationship special? Private? Confidential?!?! But would you believe it is my CLIENTS who are now sharing with everyone their mischievous ways!! Why? Because they know what a BIG difference coming clean made to their sleep story, and they want everyone to know it!

Let's resolve your child's exhausting sleep habits. Together!  So often we are dreaming small. If you are up 1 times a night or 4 times a night, it doesn’t matter, you have an end goal of wanting to sleep well, and when parents are desperate for just 8 hours or 6 hours of sleep, I say great, we are going to do that, and I’m going to double it for you. We are going for 12 hours a night. What I love is giving and providing them the tools to get this, and that is what my job is all about!
