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.
For the past five years, Newman has been deliberate in his approach to conscious learning through beautifully illustrated picturebooks with wondrous characters.
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.
