Create safety and security at home while travelling

One observation I am having when working with parents is that children who come from a two parent house seem to go to bed better when both parents are home and engaged in the bedtime routine. There is a sense of safety and security for children that when the lights go out, mom and dad are home. The same seems true for children who have grown up in a single parent house.

This may be why when only one parent is home, or after a recent divorce, or for a babysitter, children seem to be difficult to get to bed and to sleep.
