counting softly while he lies quiet/still/with eyes closed. I start at zero and count slowly up to 100 (though they have both asked for random end numbers like 77) and then count backwards from there back to zero. I count pretty slowly and it almost always works for us. I will second this idea.I think it is hearing your voice, so they know you are THERE.I did this at some point with both the kids - not counting, we called it having a scene.They had to be quiet- eyes closed, and i would tell them verrrrry sloowly and calmly and quietly...we are walking down a path <5 second pause>the sun is shining, but it is (cold/warm/windy) <5 second pause>there is a stone in the path <5 second pause>you kick it and watch it fall through the moss <5 second pause>just whatever kind of scene you want to put in his mind.even now the elf asks me to *talk him to sleep* as if my voice is equivalent to white noisepeace & stories with no plott
