Andalene, I thought you would enjoy this: last night there was drama at bedtime and I lost it. (Yes, I know I shouldn’t.) It ended with me saying, ‘This weekend we are going to Kleinmond and next week when we are back, EVERYTHING is going to change!’ This morning (two years since you were here) five-year-old Milla said, ‘I think you should get that lady again to make us be good.’ My beautiful Andalene is called a super-granny, no one would know as she looks younger then the most 30-year-olds I know! What I do know is that she is truly a wonder woman of sorts. My reason as follows: My husband and I struggled for two months to get our toddler, who used to go to bed without any troubles, back to her room. If she is not afraid of ‘the black bird’ (which we later found out is our neighbours’ chimney that she can see from her window) she refuses that we leave her room before she falls asleep. If she does fall asleep, sleeping in her room will only last a few hours. At 01:00 almost every morning you will hear the pitter-patter of small feet coming into the room. Then in comes super Andalene. After only one home visit of two hours my child’s overall listening skills and sleeping pattern increased dramatically. Andalene’s technique actually just reminded me what I have forgotten so fast: If the child is disciplined in a balanced and rational fashion during the day, night time will be no problem. Bedtime is a joy for all of us. Now she can’t wait to sleep in her own bed after story time. And she sleeps there all night, from 20:00 to 06:30 sometimes 07:00. I can recommend this phenomenal coach to every parent!
