Studies indicate the effectiveness of the extinction technique for the management of sleep problems in childhood. However, the literature points to the aversivity of the technique, which can often hamper adherence to treatment and lead to withdrawal. The objective of this study was to investigate the number of mothers who presented difficulties in applying guidelines for the management of childhood insomnia and to investigate the relationship between the difficulties of applying the intervention with characteristics and behaviors of the child and the mother. The participants were 49 mothers of children from one to five years of age who underwent parental guidance for the management of child sleep problems. The results showed that 53.1% (n = 26) of the mothers reported difficulty in applying the extinguishing procedure and that the children whose mothers had such difficulty had worse scores on internalizing problems and total behavioral problems evaluated by CBCL
