Another day 3 BFBN post! Bedtime is a common time for fears to come out. That can be tough, because by that point in the day you sometimes just want your little one to go to bed already! Carrie from Wiley Adventures has some great tips for us on just this topic.

And I don’t know about you, but very few times has it actually worked to just tell myself to stop it, to stop being afraid. As an adult, I’ve learned how to manage my fears in healthy ways and I think that’s the best way to teach our kids to handle their fears as well.”
