Successful Sleep Strategies for Kids

Dennis Rosen MD

Does your child struggle with sleep at night, or with waking up and staying awake during the day? If so, you’re not alone: 20-30% of children of all ages suffer from some form of sleep disturbance. In Successful Sleep Strategies for Kids, you’ll read about the latest discoveries science has made in the field of sleep, and learn dozens of proven and effective ways to help your child get a better night’s sleep and be more refreshed and alert during the day. These include:

  • Avoiding exposure to common (yet surprising) things that wake your child’s brain up and make it harder to fall asleep
  • How spending too much time in bed can disrupt your child’s sleep
  • Training your child to fall asleep on his own (and in his own bed!)
  • Why letting your sleep-deprived child sleep in late on the weekends can be a really bad idea
  • Preventing sleepwalking, night terrors, and bed-wetting
