A recent survey by the NHS found that 29% of six to 10-year-olds had trouble sleeping on three or more nights in the previous week. Problems getting to sleep, waking in the night or waking early were even more common among older children, affecting 38% of 11- to 16-year-olds and the majority – 57% – of young people aged 17 to 23. 

To me, it’s no wonder we have rising numbers of mental health challenges with sleep data like this!!! 

I want this episode to be super practical and informative so you can help your child, or teen, if they are one of these children struggling. 

Here are the highlights: 

{1:03} The 3 different functions of sleep 

{5:36} Keeping the worries out of the bedroom 

{10:52} With privilege comes responsibility 

{13:25} Dressing the bedroom 

{18:34} Help them find their own strategies 

{22:52} The small things that shift the emphasis of the day
