MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Bedtime stories are a part of the process of children going to sleep, but they can be used for more than that.
According to a post by Dr. Cecelia Davidson on the Mount Vernon City School District's "Speaking Out" blog, bedtime stories can be a way of preparing for the arrival of a new day. Davidson is a district Speech Language Pathologist.
The post suggests parents should provide positive ideas and affirmations during the state of vulnerability that comes when the child surrenders to sleep following story time.
