  • Eliminate power struggles.

  • Connect on a deeper level with your toddler.

  • Avoid feeling lost and like you're "ruining" your child.

  • Feel confident in your parenting.

  • Raise emotionally healthy children who are resilient.

I need this!

A Partnership between The Stoplight Approach & Little Winks Sleep:

Cherilyn Orr, mom, teacher, creator of the Stoplight Approach

Hey there I'm Cherilyn!

Founder and Creator of The Stoplight Approach

I developed The Stoplight Approach to help build safe schools, safe homes, safe communities, and resilient children. It is based on the latest research in brain science, as well as my years of experience as a teacher (early childhood, primary, special needs), as a mom to 7 children through birth and adoption, and as a foster mom. It is my passion to help parents, carers, and teachers build strong, healthy relationships with their children and their students.

Hey there I'm Anna!

Co-Creator, Owner of Little Winks, Certified Sleep Coach

Toddlers can be relentless with pushing boundaries - especially when it comes to sleep! When my oldest entered toddlerhood, I learned that very quickly!

In October 2018 I completed my certification and became a Certified Pediatric Sleep coach, and started Little Winks Sleep. 

I co-created the Learning Your Littles because I want every parent to have the tools they need to support their children to communicate well and to feel safe, secure, and connected.

Having a secure relationship with your child IS possible.
