Is Your Child Misbehaving or Missing Sleep?
Add to Wish List
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? Are you tired?
An estimated 70 million American infants, children, and
teens are sleep deprived. Could your child be one of them?
Studies have shown that sleep deficits can contribute to
hyperactivity, distraction, forgetfulness, learning
problems, illness, accidents, and disruptive behaviors. Yet
despite overwhelming scientific evidence, the connection
between children's sleep habits and their behavioral and
health problems has remained, until now, largely unrecognized.
In this warm and practical guide, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka shows
you how to:
* recognize whether your child is misbehaving or
* identify the normal, everyday activities that may
be innocently disrupting your child's sleep
* end the bedtime and nighttime struggles, and as a
result, stop the "misbehaviors" during the day
* get the sleep your whole family deserves
Sleepless in America offers weary and frustrated parents a
helping hand and an exciting new approach to managing
challenging behaviors. With her characteristic enthusiasm,
pragmatism, and extensive experience as a teacher and parent
educator, Kurcinka explains that often what our misbehaving
kids really need is not more "consequences" or more
medication, but more sleep. Integrating research on stress,
sleep, and temperament with practical strategies and a
five-step approach, Sleepless in America enables parents to
help their "tired and wired" children get the sleep they so
When we choose sleep, we choose a happier, healthier, and
more successful life for our families. With Sleepless in
America, Mary Sheedy Kurcinka helps us make that choice.
