This activity is useful for calming the mind.
If your child struggles to get back to sleep for more than 30 minutes, encourage them to get up and do something to calm the mind. Remember that different things work for different people, but some ideas to try are listed below.
Ask your child what helps them relax, and suggest they try that next time they wake in the middle of the night.
We take your safety and privacy seriously
You don’t have to share your details with us – there are lots of reasons why you might want to remain anonymous, which we will respect. All calls are confidential, and we will always seek your agreement before we share any of your details with other organisations. The only time we will share information without your consent is if we think there is a life-threatening situation, or if you or someone else might be at risk of significant harm. On these occasions we may need to contact the Police, Ambulance Service or Children’s Social Care.
We also share anonymised data with the commissioners of this service. By using Parent Talk, you understand and give your explicit consent to this.
Your email address will not be used for any reason beyond giving you parenting information, support and advice.
