Don’t Go To Sleep

Is bedtime a struggle at your house?  Does your child fight going to sleep? Have you tried multiple methods for good sleep hygiene and nothing seems to work? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Don’t Go To Sleep is for you!

Author, therapist, and mother, Megan B. Bartley, struggled at bedtime with her daughter for years. She tried multiple techniques and therapies over the years to help her daughter relax and fall asleep easily and quickly. Finally, she developed and practiced a guided meditation with her daughter at bedtime with great success. Her 4-year-old daughter liked it so much she began requesting it at bedtime. Megan wrote down her guided meditation and the result is this book.

This light and playful book combines multiple therapeutic and healing techniques to help kids let go of fears and worries that clog their minds at bedtime. It also shifts the energy spent worrying or being afraid. This energy is moved into the body so it can be observed and invited to relax and let go.

This book is written in a way to be beneficial for both the child and the parent. Children tune in to their parent’s emotions. If mom and dad are stressed or tense at bedtime, their children are likely to be stressed and tense too. This book naturally encourages parents to relax as they are reading the book with the thought that the child will follow their lead.

Former Major League Baseball pitcher and father of three, Erik Schullstrom, illustrated the book.
