How the last 20 minutes before bedtime can help you raise resilient children
Children's book author Andrew Newman says the last 20 minutes before bedtime are a key moment for preparing young minds for a good night's rest which in turn cultivates positive feelings of self-belief.

His books are designed to create closer connections between caregivers and children while teaching children core values and life skills to deal with negative feelings and challenges.
