Dr. Cathryn takes a deep dive into what happens when standard parenting advice doesn't seem to cut it. Despite trying expert strategies, some problems persist, and today, we're focusing on sleep issues that remain challenging despite parents' best efforts. We'll explore real-life struggles parents face when routines don't pan out as planned, and discuss tailored approaches that might work better. In this episode: 1. The Easy-Does-It Method Fails: A parent shares the struggle of bedtime battles with their 3-year-old, from hitting to hair-pulling. Dr. Cathryn discusses the possibility of overtiredness, the importance of understanding behavior triggers, and strategies for teaching kids to express their frustrations constructively. 2. Endless Bedtime with Mia: Four-year-old Mia can't seem to settle down at bedtime, constantly asking for "one more story." We'll talk about adjusting bedtimes, acknowledging feelings while maintaining boundaries, and practical tips for helping Mia feel connected and calm at bedtime. 3. Nighttime Fears: A parent is concerned about their 3.5-year-old's recent bedtime fears. Based on effective research findings, Dr. Cathryn introduces a comforting strategy involving a stuffed animal to help the child manage fears and build empathy. Dr. Cathryn wraps up by reminding listeners that while generic advice can be helpful, personalized adjustments are key to meeting your child's unique needs. Remember, you're the expert on your child.  Thank you for tuning in, and keep nurturing those little ones with love and understanding. Send Us Your Stories and Questions: We love hearing from you!

Is your toddler’s desire to delay dozing off driving you to distraction? Bedtime fears usually start at around two years and may last several years. They happen very commonly because children spend their days in imaginative play, and it is tough for them to turn that off at bedtime.  Even though there are many valid reasons for your toddler to fight at bedtime, you still need a chance to get some rest. Your needs matter and you have less to give when you need to recharge. So there is no need to feel guilty about wanting your child to sleep so you can take some time for yourself.  In this episode, I talk about bedtime fears and how to overcome them. I go into why children have those fears and explain why they tend to happen from a developmental perspective.  Stay tuned to learn how to lovingly, respectfully, and effectively manage your toddler’s bedtime fears. Five things likely to contribute to your toddler’s bedtime fears: Young kids experience separation anxiety, so it makes sense that they fuss when you leave the room. Toddlers tend to be defiant by nature because they want more control over their world.  A toddler’s brain is still developing. So they have so little control over their emotions. Toddlers do not understand the concept of time. So when you tell them you will see them in the morning, it seems forever away. The frontal lobe of a toddler’s brain is still developing. That is the part that allows us to reason, problem-solve, and make plans. So they are not able to talk themselves down.  Show highlights: Five things likely to contribute to bedtime fears from a developmental perspective. Why is an early bedtime best? The benefits of creating a short bedtime routine. Some effective ways to manage your toddler’s bedtime fears. The importance of creating a responsible and healthy bedtime routine. How to take charge of your child’s bedtime routine. Some calming strategies that you can teach your child to develop. How to use deep breathing in the present moment. How to stay on the same team as your child. Some easy steps to help you manage bedtimes without getting wound up. I have a bite-size course coming up soon on managing bedtime like a pro. I’ll tell you more in a future episode.

Join Dr. Cathryn in this episode as she guides you through handling tough toddler moments with calmness and empathy. Learn to see past the surface behavior and understand your child's emotions. For example, if your toddler says "I hate the baby", instead of ignoring these feelings, acknowledge and understand them. Think about how you feel when someone dismisses your bad day; your child needs to feel heard just like you do. And teach them to express big emotions with words, not actions. Keep in mind, it's completely natural for toddlers to go through a wide spectrum of emotions. The key is in how they convey these feelings. In today’s discussion, we’re zeroing in on addressing the emotional side of handling challenging behaviors. Next week, we'll shift our focus to the behavioral side – setting boundaries and maintaining them effectively.

Question 1: Dealing with False Accusations- A parent shares concern about their 2.5-year-old falsely claiming to be hit by them.Answer: Understand that toddlers often blur fantasy and reality.
