I’m absolutely thrilled to be partnering with GoodNites once again to both bring some fabulous prizes to my readers and also raise awareness for a great program they’re running.
What you need to know is that GoodNite has just launched Bedtime Theater, a great place to listen to an audio series staring a boy named Iggy that helps promote a better bedtime. You can also try your hand at writing Iggy’s next adventure, and possibly win $2,500! (Think you can’t write an adventure for him? It’s easy! Along with eight other bloggers, I participated in creating an Iggy story, and it was tons of fun.) Bedtime Theater and all of Iggy’s adventures are designed to show your child that he can have a good day, and a good night, regardless of his particular challenges. (Need to connect with experts and other parents, too? Check out the NiteLite Panel and discussion boards available for bedwetting support.)
I love the positive message here, because—let’s face it—the challenges of growing up to be a happy human don’t end with toilet training. Both of my kids (and heck, even I) struggle with control issues; part of it is nature, I guess, and part of it is having gone through a difficult divorce. We are still celebrating every victory, even the ones that come in the form of “this didn’t go exactly the way I wanted it to but I dealt with it.” Baby steps!
As if all of that wasn’t enough—trusted support resources, a chance to win big on the GoodNites site, a fun audio series to share with your child—let’s make it even more awesome. I’ll be conducting three contests for a Bedtime Theater Kit, each of which contains: a 2GB silver iPod shuffle, a pair of Logitech Speakers (compatible with the iPod), one $25 iTunes gift card, a Brookstone plush cuddle blanket, and a Patagonia tote bag to carry it all.
Want to win the first tote bag o’ goodies? Of course you do! First go review the standard contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (that’s 8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010, telling me how you make bedtime special at your house to be entered. For this contest you can get yourself a second entry by tweeting about the contest and leaving me a link to your tweet, too (double your chances). Winner to be determined by random number generation, but don’t worry—if you don’t win this one, you’ll have two more chances to win in the coming weeks, too.
