This blog talks about the use of this method and other parenting methods. Search all the information on this site to be better informed about the practice of controlled crying.

Why use controlled crying?

This method is very popular, but only in a few countries of the world.
Obviously it is used to get a child to sleep, but it is considered harmful by many. Do people know this? Why do people use this method if they know it can be harmful? Why do child health organisations continue to use this method and others protest against it? There are so many questions, and hopefully I will find some answers......
