I guess the most "unpopular" point is that concerning sleeping in the parents' bed))) IT'S UNFAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I remember my own disappointment and frustration when I wasn't allowed to remain with Mum for sleep. Oh, how various and long-lasting my pleas were!) And the truth is that I succeeded very often)
It seems that the author do not have children)). If you offer a child a drink before sleeping, he/she will get up after a while by physiological reasons. When your child is ill, you will allow him to sleep with you or at least in your room, if you are not a monster. But going to sleep in an appropriate time according to “sleeping schedule” is of vital importance, though difficult to keep to.
Haha, my first thought when I read the recomendations was just the same! Does the author really knows what it means when a childs does NOT sleep? My mum often recollects the time when I was small and she couldn't but get angry with me. Nothing could make me take some sleep if I didn't want to. I never slept in the afternoon. No toys or lullabies were able to produce a miracle. My mother was just hopeless. So there are children who are likely to violate all the laws of physiology. They are just hyperactive.
