This webinar presentation addresses the sleep needs of adults and kids. In the American epidemic of insufficient sleep children are suffering the most. Kids between birth and fifth grade are getting from one and one half to two hours less sleep per night than recommended. Recent studies have shown that 70% of American adults and children are not getting nearly enough restorative sleep. This hands-on presentation will help you to understand sleep needs for all ages and improve family sleep across the board. Attendees will learn the actual recommended amounts of sleep for children of various ages from birth to teenage years and further on into adulthood. We will discuss the obstacles to children’s sleep and the solutions that will make a difference. A guided relaxation exercise teaches techniques for initiating sleep and returning to sleep.
