Lots of children find it hard to fall asleep at the start of the night on their own. They often want mum or dad to be there with them. This might be okay for parents at the start of the night but if a child wakes up many times over night, it can quickly become exhausting for mum and dad if they need to sit with their child again over night to get them back to sleep. When this is happening, everyone can end up tired and grumpy!
This book introduces children to the evidence- based technique Camping Out. If is a gentle way to help parents move out of their child’s bedroom – typically over 1-3 weeks – whilst encouraging their child to fall asleep by themselves at the start of the night. This technique is especially suited to children who might be worried or anxious (as opposed to grumpy) if their parent tries to leave the bedroom at the start of the night.
