About the Book

Midnight Sailor is a therapeutic children's book that can be enjoyed by families to assist them with the challenges of bed wetting. This poetically written children's book reassures children and parents that they are not alone in the world when it comes to bed wetting. Many families experience the same challenge. However, bed wetting is an issue that is quite often kept private and not shared with others as it can be extremely embarrassing. Midnight Sailor informs the reader that bed wetting is a common challenge that, in most instances, resolves itself in time and is best treated simply with patience.

About the Author

Author Sharon Balardo writes her therapeutic children's book from her heart and from her own experiences as a mother raising her three children who were each faced with the challenge of bed wetting. In the Balardo household, bed wetting was referred to as midnight sailing, a good natured way to refer to a challenge that would eventually be outgrown by all three children. As Sharon Balardo completed her teacher certification at D'Youville College in 2007/2008, she was required to write two children's books as course assignments. Writing from the heart, Sharon mentally wrote the bulk of Midnight Sailor one evening as she was driving home from D'Youville College, Buffalo, New York to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Sharon Balardo regards herself as parent first, teacher/author second. She leaves her reader with this thought to ponder. "There are many challenges in the world and actually very few problems.  The difference between the two is that challenges can be fixed, in time, whereas problems cannot. Indeed bed wetting is simply a challenge that most children outgrow. If bed wetting is an issue in your family, welcome it with open arms because there are other "problems" that mother nature cannot fix."
