I contacted Shan out of sheer desperation. My husband and I had reached a breaking point with my four year old and the power struggles every night of putting him to bed. I had tried a few methods but nothing seemed to stick with my son and I just thought he was being defiant and historically a bad sleeper. The first thing Shan did for me was make me feel like my son’s issue was completely solvable and that there was hope. Her non judgmental approach made me feel like I could take control again of the situation and implement a sleep plan for him that would get him to bed at a decent time and reduce the power struggle. Implementing the routine she suggested has made a world of difference to his sleep routine and our evenings. Gone are the standoffs every night to get him to sleep and instead they have been replaced by a routine that he knows and is able to follow. I wish that I had thought of doing this far earlier in our life as family. Grateful for Shan’s assistance.
