Dad Chats Live – Talking about Sleep Training.
This week we were joined by a fantastic guest who talked to us about how we, as parents, can best manage helping our little ones to sleep. With some great hints and tips in this chat to help us cope with one of parenting’s toughest times. Jonathan spoke about how to prepare ourselves mentally (deep breaths!) and physically (go for a wee!) to help make bedtimes less stressful.
1. What is sleep training and how do we go about it with our babies and toddlers? Our special guest Jonathan Goldsmith (@be_more_you_therapy ), Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist and counsellor will be taking us through this topic and giving us some tips and pointers.
2. How well do we sleep as parents? We know how much better we function on a good nights sleep but sometimes we don’t give ourselves the best opportunity for this. Lets talk about it.
3. For our light hearted topic, let’s hear about your weird and funny dreams.
