A Kids' Sleep Book Fundies Won't Use?

I really don't think I would have read that to my kids (not that I wasn't thinking it back in the day) but I think it fits in with my dogs at 2 am who want to bark at nothing and everything until 4 am.

I know you did and I felt just the same way when my babies/toddlers would just not go the F to sleep. Don't worry though as teens they tend to sleep, sleep and then sleep some more. :D

Oh I know, I've got a 12 y/o and a 14 y/o, but trust me, the sheer need for them to sleep does not change. I haven't read this book, but the title says it all, I think.

I followed the link which lead me to this;

It is the book being read with pictures. And most parents have felt this way one time or another which is why it is funny. I doubt the fundies would feel the same as they would never beg the kid to go to sleep as plumbing line works so much better. :roll:

There is an audio book read by Samuel L Jackson. He does it SO very well. PIMP funny. I put the link in the other thread.

Hubby ordered the book, too. I'll kill him if he actually reads it to the kid, though.

I have an almost-2-yr-old and a 2 month old so this book cracks me up. I couldn't actually read it to the toddler though because that kid repeats everything these days! :lol:

Guys, it's NOT A KIDS' BOOK. It's a satire written for adults in the STYLE of a kids' book.

I think we all get that.

At the moment, the Samuel L. Jackson audiobook is free for download at audible.com.

I got it. I could have written it. Though I've finally figured out something that helps--I ask my 4 year old to "help" me go to sleep (I often have insomnia). It usually works. The other night she "helped" her baby sister by sleeping on the floor in her room. Woot! *pumps fist and rocks out*

That was hilarious. Samuel L. Jackson was the perfect person to get for the audiobook version. :clap:

Love it ! I have always been a big fan of picture books for adults :D

My BF can relate after dealing with my insomnia...

I certainly understand the feeling behind this book!

Every day my co-teacher and I have to try to get 11 3-year-olds to take a nap and this is exactly how I feel! :-P

A friend of mine who is a parent showed me this book sometime back and I loved it. The audiobook is very good and Samuel L. Jackson was the perfect narrator. There are quite a bit of these types of books which are satire books told in the children's book format.

I think it's absolutely hilarious. We had the hardest time getting our oldest to sleep. Ever. So I really relate!

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
