Parents will finally be able to get a good night sleep...whether they have been struggling with sleep issues for months or years.
Winnetka, IL (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
To help parents avoid common pitfalls and eliminate sleep issues they are experiencing with their children, Kim Schaf, M.A.T., Owner of Sleep Training Solutions and Certified Infant and Child Sleep Consultant will be offering two different seminars to help parents solve their child’s sleep issues.
Research on child sleep issues estimates that up 33% of children experience problems with sleep, according to several studies in the journal Pediatrics. Furthermore, a study was published in Pediatrics in January 2012 by researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center who found that children do not necessarily outgrow sleep issues. With these statistics on child sleep issues, it is no wonder parents are trying to educate themselves on how to promote healthy sleep habits for their children.
“Parents will finally be able to get a good night's sleep after implementing the information I give them, whether they have been struggling with sleep issues for months or years,” says Schaf. “If bedtime is struggle, a child is waking 3 times each night, waking at 5:00am or not taking restful naps, these seminars will empower parents so they can solve the sleep problem quickly.”
A free seminar, 7 Tips to Better Sleep, will be offered on Friday, February 24, 2012 at 3:00pm. Participants will learn the seven biggest tips to getting their child to sleep well, and how to avoid the common mistakes many parents make regarding bedtime, naptime, routines, and sleep props.
On March 3, 2012, a Sleep Sense™ seminar will be offered from 9-12pm. This comprehensive and interactive seminar will help parents solve their child’s specific sleep problems, including issues with bedtime, night wakings, naptime and early rising. Parents will learn about the special sleep needs of infants and toddlers, the negative effects of carrying a sleep debt, how to develop a fun and practical bedtime routine, and common pitfalls that hinder healthy sleep. Parents will take home a Sleep Plan based on their own unique situation that can be implemented immediately to solve their child’s sleep issues. The value in this seminar is in the follow-up support—each couple (or participant) will receive one week of unlimited email support from Schaf to answer any questions that come up after the seminar to ensure successful sleep training. This seminar is geared toward parents with children ages 3-18 months. Space is limited to only 12 couples (or individuals) so early registration is recommended. The cost for the seminar is $150 and registration is required.
Sleep Training Solutions will present both of these seminars at Adeline’s Room, 602 Davis Street, Evanston, IL 60201.
