Who is Richard Ferber and what is this method he calls ferberizing? I want to know what it is all about. I overheard a couple talking about it in a restaurant and what that is for children. I heard it has something to with sleeping, my child has sleeping problems, he is 2 years old, and he is not able to sleep at night comfortably. My wife and I sit with through most of the night till late until he is able to sleep. There is nothing that is scaring him, we already asked him, his room is very comfortably designed just like a 2 yr old room should be. Tell me would ferberizing help?
