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?

Welcome to the Crazy World of Lucy Brown

I am Lucy Brown. I will be embarking on some new adventures over the next few weeks and months. These adventures include taking on the role of Vera, a very dim, likeable, down to earth Liverpudlian 35-45 year old, in the PADOS (Prestwich Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society) production of Willy Russell’s Breezeblock Park, trying out as a Benefit Beauty Consultant and hopefully getting signed to Industry Casting agency for paid work as an Extra.

I am happily married to a wonderful man we have two children together and three cats.  Sadly my oldest cat Turtle has recently lost her sight due to high blood pressure but she is otherwise in good health for a cat of her age.

I am also supposed to be concentrating on working towards self-employment as a Doula, Baby Massage Instructor and Parenting Coach although recent experiences have knocked my confidence and drive in these areas and I feel more drawn to the exciting new adventures mentioned above at this time.
