Welcome to Sleeping Should Be Easy! This site caters to many aspects of parenthood, from the newborn days to helping your child learn to discipline. To help you find your way, below are the pages I recommend you start with:

Parenting

Many parents see discipline as timeouts and “counting to three.” But here at SSBE, we believe discipline is simply teaching your child, from how to make better choices to regulating emotions. Below, learn how to respond to challenging behavior in a firm yet compassionate way, all while strengthening your relationship with your child.

Motherhood

Motherhood is a roller coaster of emotions, don’t you think? We’re not perfect, but feel the pressure to be. We love our kids, but feel overwhelmed and lose our tempers. And we feel isolated and alone, unable to share how we truly feel. You’ll learn that you can a good mom, enjoy motherhood, and handle the day-to-day of running your family (without feeling frazzled). Take a look at our resources and articles below, all about motherhood.

Learn and Play


All kids are wired to learn and play, but we can do plenty to support and guide them to success. In fact, you can raise bright kids who want to learn and do well in school, not because of threats or external incentives, but because they’re driven by their own curiosity. In other words, you can raise kids who love to learn and will eventually make a difference in our world.

Sleep

Sleep-deprivation, bedtime battles, post-nap crying… these are just some of the challenges many parents face when their kids don’t sleep well. Thankfully, you’re not stuck feeling exhausted, no matter how long your child hasn’t been sleeping well. Take a look at these tips, from resolving bedtime battles to getting your child to finally sleep through the night.

Family Life

Getting out of the house every morning, cleaning potty accidents, and of course, keeping your home clean… these are just some of the challenges facing moms everywhere. But no matter how frantic your days have been, rest assured that they don’t have to stay that way. In fact, you don’t just have to survive the day-to-day family life, but thrive in it as well. Take a look at our resources below to learn how:

Twins

Being a twin mom is a whole different ballgame, don’t you think? Whether you just found out you’re having twins, surviving the early months, or navigating twin toddlerhood, life with twins can feel challenging to say the least.
