The ‘Crying it Out’ Question

A little note about the “crying” question.

Since people always ask me about whether the Sleep Sense™ Method involves “crying it out,” I think it’s something that deserves to be addressed here.

Crying is your child’s way of protesting change, and you can expect that making changes to their sleep habits will result in some protest. That’s why I’m always sure to tell parents that my program will most likely involve at least some amount of protest on the child’s part.

Please understand that I will never ask you to leave your child to cry alone, nor will I ask you to ignore their cries. The reason that the Sleep Sense™ Method is so effective is that it lets you develop a plan that you feel comfortable with, based on what you know about your child.

If you have any questions at all about the philosophy behind the Sleep Sense™ Method, please don’t hesitate to ask! I can be reached by email at leslie@akissgoodnight.ca.  or by telephone at +1.604.984.0116
