The value in this book is the realization that both children and parents are different. They have different temperaments, needs, family values, etc. that have to be considered in developing a sleep strategy. ‘The Sleep Book..’ offers parents options to accommodate their family’s individual values and style. Practical suggestions help ease parents and children into a sleep pattern that the whole family can live with. Parents can choose for themselves from three major techniques: the family bed, the cry-it-out approach, and the teach-in-small-steps plan.
