September 15, 2006, Newsletter Issue #98: Crying toddlers and children

Tip of the Week

If you have trouble getting your toddler or young child to go to sleep of a night, try this method: Gently but sternly (no yelling) settle them down; spend only a couple of minutes doing this. Then, quietly and without fuss, leave the room telling your child that you will be back in a few minutes. Wait 2 minutes and return, repeating the same settling and leaving routine. Wait 4 minutes and repeat. Keep doubling the wait time. You may find this doesnīt work for a night or two, but soon the child will respond and settle more quickly; theyīll enjoy Dadīs ītuck-inī.
