Sleeping Issues

Hi Ilona, I just wanted to share something that happened earlier this evening. We are all still heavily flu infected except ‘K’ who bought it home initially.

‘P’ (my husband) was trying to die quietly on the lounge when ‘K’ thought she would go in for a cuddle. She was curled up next to him and said totally out of the blue “you know daddy, I used to hate going to bed but now I like it”.

We weren’t sure really what to do with that but just gave her a cuddle and said that’s good honey. Where did that come from? Couldn’t wait four weeks to share:) ‘P’ was totally blown away.

Anxiety and Sleep Issues.

“Completing all areas of this case study, I do believe ‘A’ made great progress. His anxiety decreased; his sleep improved greatly and his scholastic endeavours were improved. Of note was the unforeseen improvement of ‘A’ attitude and behaviour towards his sister. 

Mum was thrilled. She also confessed that she loved this dedicated time with her sleeping babies each night. A positive experience all round.”

 Sleeping Issues, Anger, Speech Issues.

“Had a very positive result, her sleep improved by 90% and so did her ability to remain calm and deal with anger. She is very affectionate with all family members including her sister who previously was scratched and bitten by her daily.

She has also become completely toilet trained and dry at night. Speech was also an issue, so after introducing additional ‘specific’ suggestions, the educators commented at her day care: “She has really found her voice and become confident and outgoing”. The parents will continue to use to help her navigate her way through future changes and make good choices.”

Sleeping Issues.

Parent feedback: “Attempting something for the first time, I was nervous to begin the process, especially as it takes me forever to get ‘L’ to sleep. The thought of waking the child was a huge concern. 

It took me a couple of nights to get into the regular pattern of remembering to administer the foundation process and skill is required to understand and judge when ‘L’ was in the correct brain wave frequency. I found that ‘L’ would give a little sigh and I could begin. I only touch her forehead and stroke her if I have been out and she is in a very deep sleep.

I found that within the first week of starting the process ‘L’ was more affectionate to her father, hugging him and saying I love you.  I found that after working with the foundation process for a week if ‘L’ woke at night I would enter the room and using my calm reassuring voice I would recite the statements. She would instantly settle back down to sleep.

I was using the script during the day with ‘L’ choosing appropriate times and using them in context to what was happening around us. I often hear ‘L’ saying: “Today is a happy day”. 

After about a month of using the foundation process I started saying the words to ‘L’ at night before she would go to sleep. One day she said “Stop Mummy it’s my turn.” And she changed the wording herself to use the foundation stage on me. WOW, I thought what an impact this has had on her. This reinforced to me just how important it is to give our children continual positive reinforcement.”
