Getting Ready to Try Tapping

Step 1 - Ask your child if he or she would be interested in trying a new tapping exercise that will help them feel ready to go to sleep.
 

Step 2 - Ask your child to take a deep breath in, through their nose and out through their mouth.  

Step 3 - Encourage them to accept how they feel about not feeling sleepy; that it's okay to feel this way and we will figure it out.


Step 4 - follow the tapping script below, encouraging them to express themselves, and talk about why they don't want to go to bed or don't think they are ready to go to bed/sleep. You can steer them with the affirmation statements. 


Step 5 - If your child hasn't really improved from doing this, try going through it again. The language should start to change and show improvement in how they are feeling.
