Sleeping Beauty and Bed Time Tips for Children

Sleeping Beauty Diamond Edition comes to Blu-ray™, DVD, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on October 7th. This family classic is fabulous to watch on high definition picture with thrilling, soaring sound. The wonderful story of beauty, wonder and adventure spinning together in a grand legend that transcends time, as Maleficent sends the kingdom’s beloved Princess Aurora into an enchanted sleep. Success in battle may not be enough, for the only way to awaken the Princess is with True Love’s kiss. My children really enjoy the story line, and I think it is a fun movie to watch many times with the family.

Bonus features, include "Once Upon A Parade," in which "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland tells us the tale of Walt Disney World’s new Festival Of Fantasy Parade, "Art of Evil: Generations Of Disney Villains," a legacy piece spotlighting Disney’s favorite villain animator and Maleficent creator Marc Davis, and "@DisneyAnimation: Artists in Motion," in which Walt Disney Animation Visual Development artist Brittney Lee goes through the process of creating a three dimensional sculpture of Maleficent, completely out of paper. Additional all-new bonus features include never-before-seen deleted scenes "The Fair" (with Deleted Character The Vulture,) "The Curse is Fulfilled" and "Arrival Of Maleficent," plus the Beauty-Oke sing-along to "Once Upon A Dream." The Blu-ray Superset also includes classic DVD bonus features and more.

Clinical psychologist Dr. Michael Breus, a sleep experts, has some advice to offer parents that will help children sleep.
  1. Be consistent. Going to bed and waking up at the same time (even on weekends) will help children keep Maleficent’s evil henchmen out of their dreams. 
  2. Use Flora’s gift of beauty. Help your children finish up whatever they’re doing, clean up their toys and make the room neat, comfortable and ready for sleep.
  3. Use Fauna’s gift of song. While everyone’s getting ready for bed, sing a few favorite soothing songs while they bathe, brush their teeth and put on pajamas.
  4. Use Merryweather’s gift of true love’s kiss. Dim the lights, turn on a night-light and read a book. If kids still have trouble quieting their busy brains, try the "relaxation game." And then give your little ones that loving kiss good night.
  5. Embrace Maleficent’s color of darkness. The color black is best for sleep, though most children like a little light at night. Keep in mind that some night-lights (LEDs, for example) contain “blue light” and that can actually keep a child awake by preventing the brain’s production of melatonin, which starts the engine for sleep. So make sure your child’s night-light is one that filters out blue light.
  6. Follow Sleeping Beauty’s name, Aurora. She is so named because she fills people’s lives with sunshine. When children wake up in the morning, stop by a sun-filled window or take them outside for 15 minutes of brightness. Sun exposure helps reset their internal biological clocks each morning. Parents can also leave the window shades open so the child can wake with the morning light.
Dr. Breus notes that roughhousing and other similar "fun games" often initiated by parents who haven’t seen their children all day usually result in poor sleep.

Three rules for napping for infants and toddlers:
  1. Set a specific naptime, or make it three to four hours after they last woke up.
  2. Have a consistent pre-nap routine (it will not be as long as the pre-bedtime routine).
  3. Let children soothe themselves to sleep, even when napping.
