Some children may not feel tired at their designated bedtime while others have trouble falling asleep without a parent present. Some kids will frequently wake up in the middle of night, suddenly wide awake, and either toss and turn or come and wake up mom and dad. But there is hope. Many childhood sleep problems are linked to daytime behavior and bedtime habits that you can work with your child to change. With a little patience and discipline, you can help your child overcome their sleep difficulties, help them fall and stay asleep—and get back on track to more restful nights of your own.

Sleep and Teens

Childhood Insomnia and Sleep Problems -

Teens are notorious for wanting to stay up late and sleep in late. Find out what's behind this behavior and how you can help your teen get better sleep — starting tonight. Everyone has an internal clock that influences body temperature, sleep cycles, appetite and hormonal changes. The biological and psychological processes that follow the cycle of this hour internal clock are called circadian rhythms. Puberty changes a teen's internal clock, delaying the time he or she starts feeling sleepy and awakens.

Common Sleep Problems

Not all sleep problems are persistent. You can sort out many short-term sleep problems by encouraging good sleep habits. Some persistent sleep problems are related to behaviour. These problems can happen at bedtime or during the night. For example, if your child gets out of bed at night as a way of keeping you around, it can help to minimise the amount of talking and eye contact you give him each time you gently return him to bed.
