The Bedtime Pass Program may be beneficial for your child if they are resistant to sleeping in their own bed. Here are the four simple steps of the program:
1. Give your child a special card good for one free trip out of their room each night or one visit from a parent – for a brief, acceptable purpose such as a drink and a hug. Many families decorate the cards, often with the child.
2. Require the child to get in bed at bedtime, but be sure the free pass is close at hand.
3. When the child uses the pass, the card is surrendered for the rest of the night.
4. If children leave the room again that night, they are walked back without a word and without eye contact.
