Help! My child is afraid of the dark!

Help! My child is afraid of the dark!

We’ve talked about children’s fear of the dark before, but this is such an ongoing problem for many of us, so we thought we’d revisit it. After all, sleep deprivation is no one’s friend!

In a study by Muris et al 2001 children aged 4 -12 and their parents were interviewed about children's night time fears. Results showed that 73.3% of the children were afraid of the dark.

Back to school anxiety

Back to school anxiety

In a few, short days our beautiful little people will head back to school. For most families it’s a combination of excitement mixed with sadness because the school holidays are over. For some, like us, back to school time is quite challenging due to back to school anxiety. Much to my surprise I’ve realised that we are not alone, there are many families who struggle at this time of year.

Now back to school jitters are completely normal and fade after a few weeks but for children who struggle with anxiety, it can be quite stressful.

Will White Noise help my baby sleep?

Will White Noise help my baby sleep?

For some babies and children a simple night light is not enough, they need sounds or noise to help them to sleep. I thought I'd look at why some children need noise to soothe them at night and the different types of sounds available, including white noise and pink noise.

Duski Sleep Aids - The story so far!

Duski Sleep Aids - The story so far!

I always wanted to develop my own night light after years of selling other companies' products and this year I decided to bite the bullet and jump into the unknown territory of product development head first.

All children are unique and AMAZING in their own special way and I realised that some babies and children need MORE than a night light to calm, relax and help them sleep at night. So I took all of your feedback and developed the Duski Dream Guardian range.

Why Routines Are Important for Children

Why Routines Are Important for Children

Not everyone likes routines, some parents find them too structured, but personally, I’m a HUGE fan!

Occasionally I do find myself wishing that I was a fly by the seat of your pants kinda mum, but the idea of just winging it, tends to bring me out in hives!

Whilst change helps children to learn and experience new things, it can sometimes be stressful for them. Having a routine provides certainty and security and this is really important, especially in early childhood.
