Publisher's Summary

Do you want your children to listen to the fantastic stories to dream about for all ages - a story for kids who love dinosaurs, the magic unicorn story for helping children fall to sleep? If yes, then keep reading...

One of the most difficult things about bedtime is getting your child to calm down and be ready to lie down without bouncing and having a million more things to say. After a long day, you know that they need to relax and get to sleep. But when children get tired, they will often get hyperactive, as well. Getting your child to come off that high and helping them to relax and be ready to fall asleep is never easy and can make the whole bedtime routine a big headache.  

The good news is that there are a few steps that we can take in order to help calm our children down and get them to be more relaxed and ready for bed. There are a number of techniques that we are able to use to help reduce the stress that children are feeling and help them relax. Depending on the specific child you work with, some of these will work better than others. 

Some of the options that you are able to choose from will include: 

Deep breathing: The first option is just simple deep breathing. This is a very effective and quick way to slow down our bodies and can get stress and other hyperactivity symptoms to calm down. 

Progressive muscle relaxation: Another option to work with is known as progressive muscle relaxation. This is going to be a great way to relieve stress. And when you get your child to focus on the various muscle groups one at a time, this can be a natural way to get them to focus and relax, without having to worry about getting their minds to slow down in other manners. 

Visualization: The third option that you can work with is known as visualization, which is the same thing as working with visual guided imagery. This is going to be a good technique that relies on the imagination of the child, but can help to slow down and cut out some of the chatter of the mind, while getting rid of some of the worries and thoughts the child can deal with on a regular basis. 

Listen to some music: Some children find that listening to music on a regular basis is one of the best ways to help a child to refocus and get ready for bed. When they are getting ready to fall asleep, perhaps, during their bedtime routine of getting changed, taking a bath, and brushing their teeth, turn on some relaxing music to help out with this. Even children who are really young can enjoy listening to some classical music or even something newer like Josh Groban that can help to bring their levels down and get them ready to fall asleep.

Meditation: Many organizations, including the Mayo Clinic, advises that some basic meditation techniques, including yoga and transcendental meditation, will help to relax both the body and the mind.

Toe tensing: Another option that can work well and will get your child to concentrate on one thing to calm down, and one you may not have heard about in the past, is known as toe tensing. This is going to be something that helps to draw all of the tension down from the rest of the body.

stuck on chapter 18

My daughter loves this but every so often it gets stuck on chapter 18. It doesn't allow us to skip or even change the audio book to a different one. It completely freezes audible for anywhere up to weeks.
