Fears and Worries at Bedtime

As a parent, your natural reaction is to reassure your child when they express their fears and worries at bedtime, but in many cases, and for many kids, reassurance is not enough, and it simply doesn’t work. When fears and worries affect a child’s sleep, it may present as trouble falling asleep at night, staying asleep, night time wakings or even early morning wakings.

If you have an anxious child or a child that has a hard time sleeping due to worrying, you’re going to need a few more tools in your sleep toolbox in order to help them unpack all the issues that make it hard for them to get a good night’s sleep.
