Review - DreamChild™ Adventures in Relaxation and Sleep

Does your child experience insomnia, nightmares or bedwetting? Is he or she anxious or depressed? Angry or aggressive? Do they lack self-confidence and self-esteem?

Perhaps all they need is a good night’s sleep.

DreamChild Adventures™ audio programs, by psychiatrist Dr. Tom Jackson, have helped countless children achieve deeper relaxation and sounder sleep, conquer a host of sleep-related issues, and even build confidence and self-esteem. Backed by nearly $2 million in research-tested methods and technology, and utilizing a recording technique called 3D Living Sound, these downloadable (and on CD) journeys are brought to life in a way that has only been imagined…until now.

These entertaining and spellbinding audio adventures place the children themselves directly in the story - center stage - immersing them in hyper-realistic natural settings and gently and playfully guiding them toward more restful nights and relaxation.

To provide an even deep understanding of sleep disorders in children, Dr. Jackson has authored DreamChild™ Adventures in Relaxation and Sleep, which contains a wealth of information designed to support and supplement the DreamChild™ Adventures audio programs.

Dr. Jackson has included fourteen clinical interviews, which follows one or more children who suffered sleep problems, but who subsequently benefited from using the DreamChild™ Adventures audio programs. Each interview with the children’s parent, guardian, or therapist is broken up into two basic sections - a “before,” describing problems the children experienced prior to using the programs and an ‘after,’ relaying one or more follow-up interviews conducted several days, weeks, or months later, detailing the improvements the caretakers noticed after use of the programs.

In this in-depth resource, Dr. Jackson also explores many traditional treatments for children’s sleep problems and anxiety-related issues, including behavioral interventions and situations requiring medical attention. He even discusses adult use of these children’s programs.

“I hope to provide you with a deep understanding of the problems these audio programs and this companion guide can be used to treat, as well as related benefits that may be achieved,” says Dr. Jackson. “By showing you specific and often sweeping changes these children underwent through their experiences with the programs, my aim is to give you confidence in their potential usefulness and to inspire you to use them with any child in your life who you believe may benefit.”

Showcasing a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, DreamChild™ Adventures in Relaxation and Sleep provides an introduction to common and not so common childhood problems including:

  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Bedwetting
  • “Nature-Deficit Disorder”
  • Nightmares
  • Sibling Rivalry
  • Spanking
  • Children of Divorce
  • Academic Performance
  • And much more!

Give your child the gift of quality sleep,” adds Dr. Jackson, “and give a gift that will benefit him or her and your whole family for a lifetime!”

My Take on the Program
I have had the opportunity in the past to be able to try a number of relaxation techniques to aid myself in lessening the stress of daily life. When I heard about this program I was quite interested as it was geared toward children and I have a daughter that has issues falling asleep at night. When I received the book and two CD's I was eager to jump right in to learn more. The book is well laid out and I enjoyed seeing the before and after comparisons that were offered to the reader. I learned a lot about what this program was all about but also how relaxation can truly help those that suffer from a number of issues. When I had my daughter try this, it took a day or so, but then I started to see that she was becoming used to the flow of the CD and how it was supposed to work to help her relax all-together. Since trying this, I have found that she is falling asleep sooner and seems to sleep deeper as well (now I just have to be able to get her to wake up in the morning).

Overall, I was quite impressed, as this program definitely worked for my daughter and if you have a child that suffers from any of the issues listed earlier, I would encourage you to consider this program as a possible remedy!
