Settling an Active 7-Year-Old Down to Sleep

08 Apr

We recently found this posting about one of our favorite kids’ guided imagery recordings, Betty Mehling’s Magic Island.  It says it all about the really priceless ways a simple recording can positively impact your child, so we’re just going to let it speak for itself:

We purchased this CD for our eldest daughter 2 years ago. She was having difficulty quieting her active mind at bedtime. At age 7 she began listening to this CD occasionally. Her frequency of listening grew more regular and after about 6 weeks she was listening to the CD nightly.

She has listened to it nightly for almost 2 years now. She is so comforted by the soothing and nurturing imagery of this magical journey in a hot air balloon to the magic island.

Thank you so much for making this wonderful CD available. It has changed her sleep to a more restful and restorative experience in a safe and peaceful manner.
