Young children may create challenges at bedtime that range from separation anxiety, to nightmares or fears of the dark, to a resistance to doing things within a routine. Our child psychologist, Dr. Susan Bartell, will weigh-in on these challenges, and include our dolls as potential solutions.


As children grow and gain confidence to venture out in their world, they begin having new, possibly scary experiences (e.g. a noisy fire engine, dog barking loudly, a strongly disliked food) that can be fodder for nightmares...


As children are trained to soothe themselves to sleep, valuable lessons are learned,and the child will develop a stronger sense of self-esteem, autonomy and a feeling of competence.
