Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Does your child
  • Refuse to cooperate in the morning?
  • Get into trouble for not listening?
  • "Lose it" over seemingly insignificant issues?
  • Seem to resist sleep?

An estimated 69 percent of American infants, children, and teens are sleep deprived. Studies have shown that sleep deficits can contribute to hyperactivity, distraction, forgetfulness, learning problems, illness, accidents, and disruptive behaviors. Often what our misbehaving kids really need isn't more "consequences" or more medication but more sleep.

Sleepless in America offers weary and frustrated parents a helping hand and an exciting new approach to managing challenging behaviors by integrating research on stress, sleep, and temperament with practical strategies and a five-step approach that enables parents to help their "tired and wired" children get the sleep they so desperately need.

Synopsis:

Offers a practical study of the link between sleep deprivation and behavioral problems, demonstrating how sleep deficits contribute to hyperactivity, illness, distraction, forgetfulness, learning problems, and impulsive or disruptive behavior in children of all ages and introduces a five-step program designed to help children get the sleep they need. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
