From the Back Cover:

"The brain is a powerful organ even at rest. It accepts suggestions in the sleep state. With Sleep Talk, it receives and accepts honest, positive information because the 'why it won't work' objection is not present. When a mother tells her son positive things while he's awake, he can choose to negate everything she says. But in deep sleep, when she tells him how special he is and how much he means to her, the information is accepted, and changes in behavior begin to happen." -- From the Introduction What parent doesn't want to be more effective in helping his or her child cope with age-specific stresses and transitions? Whether it's starting a new school, giving up thumb sucking, or potty training, parents are constantly faced with the responsibility of easing their children through challenging phases. Here is an exciting new way for mothers and fathers to assist their children, from toddlers to teens, with these situations. Registered nurse Lois Y. Haddad developed the ideas for this groundbreaking book as she cared for chronically ill children while a pediatric nurse at UCLA Medical Center. She would utter positive messages to her young patients as they were experiencing their deepest pattern of sleep, when both children and adults are most receptive to messages. She found the children responded well to her nightly talks, which helped them on the road to recovery. Now, having adapted her technique for parents coping with the myriad issues and transitions facing their children on a day-today basis, Haddad presents this revolutionary program in simple terms with dozens of illustrative anecdotes and ideas. By creating a special script that reinforces their love and pride in their son or daughter, parents can convey specific messages that will comfort and encourage their child as they tackle everything from two-year-old tempers to teenage communication issues. Sleep Talk is invaluable as a parenting tool for concerned moms and dads, as well as an important way for parents to reconnect with their children on a regular basis.
