A child that doesn't want to go to bed might be scared, unsettled or feeling rejected or abandoned, and the BogeyMan (strange and unrealistic as it may seem) is a common denominator.
Recently a blog article in the US asked bout the creepiest things children say, and many of them discussed a man they could 'see' when nobody else could.
Do you remember seeing the bogeyman? Or being scared that a hand might reach out from under the bed and grab your ankle? I do. I was petrified, and wish I knew then what I know now.
This happens a lot for kids. That man (or woman for that matter) may not actually physically be in their room, but he/she is actually in their perception, (visual, feeling or mind) and so does need to be moved...
After all - if there was a stranger in your room, would you be comfortable sleeping?
Moving unwanted visitors is done by house clearing.
A session includes energetically clearing the room, helping you tune in to the specifics, giving you tools for healing emotional or painful feelings or situations for your child, creating more connection and wellness for you as a family.
Firstly - it's you who absolutely has to sleep. Shattered parents are stressed parents. Many people believe parenting by default means disrupted sleep. What if this was not true for you? When your child feels safe and sleeps well, your chances are greatly improved.
So the odds are - setting your child, and his or her room up for better sleep is going to positively affect you.
Let's chase away the BogeyMan and get the whole family off to sleep.
