Who doesn’t love sleep?
When I cut my sleep time I know what will happen and often we assume the same thing will happen to our children. We’ll just be a little blurry and we just have to get through it! Brain science is telling us differently now. Children with sleep loss have very different effects than adults. It’s surprising how differently sleep loss is to a child and teen than it is to an adult. We’re not talking about babies and sleep but elementary and older children. So much happens when we sleep, if only they knew maybe they’d sleep more.
During this episode we talk about how children and adults lack of sleep is very different to each other and how we can support our family to have better sleep and why this is crucial for the well being of ourselves and the family.
What’s the struggle you’re having around sleep with elementary and older children?
What simple things have worked in your family to get the right amounts of sleep time?
