Power struggles between you and your child are predictable, inevitable and a part of growing up. Your discipline style however, is a key ingredient in minimizing these power struggles.


The Volcano Effect: Why Skipping a Nap Results in Meltdown

From the moment your child wakes in the morning he is slowly using up the benefits of the previous night’s sleep. He wakes up totally refreshed, but as the hours pass, little by little, the benefits of his sleep time are used up, and an urge to return to sleep begins to build. When we catch a child at in-between stages and provide naps, we build up his reservoir of sleep-related benefits, allowing him a “fresh start” after each sleep period.
