“I don’t want to go to bed!” If you’re a parent of a preschool-age child, you’ve probably heard this before. And you probably know about the crying, fits, and complaining—by both of you—that can follow. Ready for Bed! offers healthy, lasting solutions for a stress-free bedtime routine.
This book, and others in the series, provides a BONUS for parents and caregivers. With honesty and gentle humor, Ready for Bed! shows how to handle typical bedtime struggles by modeling three parenting techniques using color-coded text to teach the language of positive parenting:
- Giving encouragement
- Validating feelings
- Offering choices
These techniques are explained in detail in a section at the end of the book that is just for adults. The result: you get through bedtime challenges with less stress while building your child's emotional intelligence and your own parenting skills.

- Easy-to-use techniques and positive language highlighted in color-coded text
