Monsters, Robbers and Nightmares, Oh My! Simple Steps to Improve Your Child's Sleep
Presenter: Courtney Weiner, Ph.D..
Sleep is critical to a child's physical health, development, and emotional well-being. However, many children do not get sufficient sleep due to anxiety and nighttime fears. Signs of sleep problems in children include bedtime avoidance or refusal, fear of sleeping alone, chaotic or irregular sleep schedule, daytime sleepiness, and physical symptoms at bedtime, such as stomachaches and headaches. Through this webinar, you will learn about the most common sleep problems and nighttime fears in youth, steps you can take to improve your child's sleep, and when to seek out professional support.
