By offering strong lasting solutions, this book and others in the series will provide an additional benefit for parents and caregivers. With honesty and gentle humor, Ready for Bed! shows how to handle typical bedtime struggles by modeling three parenting techniques with color-coded text to teach the language of positive parenting:

These techniques are explained in detail in a section at the end of the book, and is written just for adults. It will help you get through everyday challenges with less stress, while building your child's emotional intelligence and your own parenting skills.
