Solving Bedtime Battles

Our essential online course for parents of children ages 2 – 12 covers stalling, night wakings, tantrums, and more!

Is bedtime not going well?

Your child stalls and has big tantrums at bedtime.

Cry-it-out and other common sleep methods feel wrong.

Your child has fears, nightmares, or night terrors.

Your child just won’t stay in bed.

Your child seems tired – but just won’t sleep!

Bedtime feels like it’s never-ending!

You don’t want to ignore your child – but you don’t know what else to do.

You are ready to have your evenings back.

You don’t need to fight this battle forever. And you definitely don’t need to fight this battle alone.

Let us help.

Here’s a sneak peek…

Yelling doesn’t feel good at bedtime. Neither does ignoring.

But, when you have a child who comes endlessly out of bed, won’t listen, and takes hours to fall asleep (when you are already exhausted) – it can take everything in you to stay calm…

Traditional approaches to child sleep will tell you to let them cry it out alone or that you must ignore them. But that doesn’t feel right.

These approaches miss one critical piece. Separation is incredibly tough for children. Being alone for 10-12 hours can feel daunting (to say the least).

So, in a frantic attempt to keep you close, you see stalling, clinging, whining, and coming out of bed to find you.

This course includes our proven framework for bedtime that stands apart.

You will deeply understand your child’s struggles, and we will give you practical guidance for all the most common sleep struggles!

A Guide to Sleep Pressure

Jess, I could marry you! I’m only a third of the way through the bedtime course and in less than two weeks we have gone from kicking and hitting for 2 hours a night to a new bedtime routine that is calm and no one gets hurt!! I’ve gone from hysterically crying at the side of my bed to eating chocolate on the sofa at 7:15pm. I could not be happier!


Mom of 2

Last week I officially finished the course… I’m super excited to report that my highly sensitive 7 year old who would repeatedly wake in the night has been sleeping through for two consecutive nights and woke up looking happy and refreshed!! It makes me so happy!


Mom of 3

I was skeptical about buying this course because I didn’t think anything would help my stubborn and sassy little girl. Well, literally two nights of your strategies she was sleeping through the night. Your course worked wonders!! Thank you for giving me my reliable evenings back. Thank you, thank you!!


Mom of 2

We have a sensitive 3 year old and moved him to his big boy room. It did NOT go well. I bought your sleep course and started implementing it right away. We saw change the FIRST night. Each night gets better and better. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!


Mom of 1

It has worked wonders – he went from crying, kicking, trying to climb out to screaming out a little for me to bring him his stuffy and then he settles right to bed! Thank you so much for that approach. I haven’t heard it anywhere else and it’s just so sweet and gentle.


Mom of 3

My 5 year old (who was THE most stubborn) is now sleeping through the night all alone in her own bed thanks to your course! It took about two weeks, and now she is a champ and sleeps through until her grow clock says it’s time to get up. Thank you!!!


Mom of 3

Will there be crying?
We are dealing with children, so I’ll be honest with you. Probably.
What sets this course apart from other toddler sleep approaches is I won’t tell you to let your child cry it out alone or hold the door closed. You will learn to support your child to sleep with responsive methods.
How long does it take to get results?

Many parents see results as soon as 1 or 2 nights, and others see change over 30 days (research tells us it takes at least 21 days to see a long-term change).

Like all things parenting, there are no guarantees when we support children with unique needs. This is why we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee if you aren’t happy with your purchase.

The tools taught in this course have helped tens of thousands of parents worldwide and are rooted in decades of research on child behaviour and sleep! We are confident they can help you too!

What makes this course different from all the other sleep courses?

This course stands out from the others out there because it is so much more than just quick tips like check wake times, change nap schedules, “start a routine,” create a dark room – and all the other easily “Googleable” info you’ll find out there.

This course goes waaaay deeper. Because your child’s needs are way deeper. We dive into why separation is so hard for your child. We help you get curious about your child’s unique needs. Using our signature “bedtime ladder” approach, we teach you how to make a customized plan that will work for your own child.

What if your approach doesn't work for my kid?
The tools taught in this course have helped tens of thousands of parents worldwide and are rooted in decades of research on child behaviour and sleep! We are confident they can help you too!

But, like all things parenting, there are no guarantees when we support children with unique needs. If our approach doesn’t work for your family, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.

What's the catch?
The catch is, we’re not offering a one-size-fits-all, quick fix. You can Google that! We’re offering an approach that works for your own child and family and creates lasting change, through curiousity, connection, responsiveness. And that means dedication, consistency and compassion for your child, and yourself. We can’t wait to help you get started!
What if it doesn't work for me?

We believe in the course so much that we want you to try it for 30 days risk free. If you don’t feel totally happy with your purchase after 30 days we refund you in full. (Yes, that is how much we believe this course will help you!)

Can I gift the course to someone?

Yes! First of all, I love that!
