How I helped my daughter sleep soundly after a nightmare

bad dreams

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged here but I wanted to share this tip as I believe it may be helpful to others.

My daughter aged 9 woke a few days ago from a vivid nightmare and she was scared to go back to sleep in case she had the same dream.

Somehow in my half asleep state I managed to soothe her with this simple yet very effective visualisation.

I suggested she imagine the bad dream as a dvd in her head, eject the dvd and destroy it. Then replace it with a dvd she would prefer to dream about (she chose Barbie).

This worked a treat. Do your little ones have nightmares? Do you have any tips? Let me know if you try mine & whether or not it works for you?
