Empowering Families: Our Child-Led Sleep Teaching Method

At Parenting Practice of Colorado, we understand that parenting is a journey filled with joy and challenges, especially when it comes to ensuring our children get the sleep they need. That's why we've developed an innovative and gentle sleep teaching method that empowers both children (from birth to 12 years of age) and parents, fostering better sleep habits and stronger family connections.

Our approach is centered on a child-led, personalized methodology that recognizes the unique needs of each child. We believe in actively involving parents and providing continuous support throughout the entire process.

When you embark on this journey with us, one of our nine pediatric sleep specialists will be dedicated to offering you personalized 1-on-1 support for a duration of 2 to 4 weeks. This tailored attention ensures that the guidance you receive is specifically designed for your child's sleep patterns and habits. We start by using a comprehensive questionnaire to understand your child's individual needs, forming the foundation for a customized sleep plan.

The process kicks off with a thorough 1-hour consultation where we meticulously review the sleep plan with you. Our goal is to equip you with a comprehensive understanding of the strategies outlined so that you feel confident in implementing them effectively. Throughout the program, our specialists remain by your side, offering consistent support, making adjustments as necessary, and guiding you through the process.

A distinctive feature of our method is the gradual reduction of parental support as your child progresses. Initially, parents remain in the room, providing comfort and reassurance. As your child gains confidence and independence, parental presence diminishes, allowing your child to develop self-soothing techniques and the ability to fall asleep independently.

Our daily log reviews and coaching sessions are designed to reinforce positive sleep behaviors and address any challenges that may arise. This continual support ensures that both parents and children feel equipped to navigate the changes effectively.

Our ultimate goal is multifaceted: we aim to help children learn to sleep independently, consolidate their nights, establish healthy nap patterns, and empower parents, fostering increased confidence in their parenting abilities. As a result, parents often find additional time for themselves, reconnect with their partners, and experience a more harmonious family dynamic.

In conclusion, at Parenting Practice of Colorado, our child-led sleep teaching method is designed to be a beacon of hope for parents seeking a gentle yet effective approach to address their child's sleep challenges. With our personalized support, tailored strategies, and emphasis on gradual progress, this method not only transforms sleep habits but also empowers families, fostering a positive environment where both children and parents thrive.
