Long Island Toddler Sleep Help
Toddlers and older children can be whirlwinds. One minute they’re crying, the next they’re laughing, the next they’re trying to literally climb a wall. It’s a great time for the family, even if a bit exhausting at times. One of the most enjoyable parts is how quickly they’re developing cognitively, expanding their vocabulary, solving problems, learning interpersonal skills (sort of), and becoming imaginative.
They’re also harder to control and understand. Somehow, in that rapidly expanding vocabulary, they learned to talk back to you. In their problem solving abilities, they learn to manipulate you. These are regular parts of raising a toddler, but they can also cause other problems, including around bedtime. Many toddlers, full of newfound imagination and ideas, reject going to sleep, and their habits quickly fall out of sorts.
However, while toddlers and older children are the most challenging out of all of the age groups I work with, it can also be the most rewarding. The person that they will one day become is shining through, and helping them make good decisions in their young lives is such an important part of helping them become the best grownups that they will one day be.

Why Healthy Sleeping Habits Matter for Your Toddler
I understand the daily struggles that come with a sleep deprived family. Frustration – even resentment – builds over time. You’re always tired and sluggish, rarely spending time on rejuvenating activities that you used to rely upon, and you probably feel at least a little bit hopeless. It happens all the time, though knowing that doesn’t necessarily make it easier.
But what I also understand is that it’s not just about the daily struggle. I think of it like this… Eating one hamburger isn’t going to make you overweight. But eating a hamburger every day just might, which can lead to more serious health problems down the line. Sleeping is not so different. A bad night of sleep here and there isn’t going to be terribly harmful for you or your toddler. But bad nights of sleep on a constant, regular basis will.
In fact, the science behind the importance of sleep has become much more developed lately, linking healthy, regular sleeping habits to all kinds of health benefits. The same is true for your little one. Sleeping well has all kinds of physical and psychological benefits; and, while you might not notice them on a day-to-day basis, you do realize them over time. But by then it can be too late, which is why it’s so important to address this problem head-on.
