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?

An estimated 69 percent of American infants, children, and teens are sleep deprived. Studies have shown that sleep deficits can contribute to hyperactivity, distraction, forgetfulness, learning problems, illness, accidents, and disruptive behaviors. Often what our misbehaving kids really need isn't more "consequences" or more medication but more sleep.

Sleepless in America offers weary and frustrated parents a helping hand and an exciting new approach to managing challenging behaviors by integrating research on stress, sleep, and temperament with practical strategies and a five-step approach that enables parents to help their "tired and wired" children get the sleep they so desperately need.

A great resource not just for frazzled parents but anyone who is struggling to get a good night of shuteye. As a first-time parent I freaked out when my son wouldn't sleep and read many a conflicting book on how to get your kid to sleep. At the end of the day this is the book I recommend to others in similar situations. I appreciate the gentle approach taken by this book, and would not suggest any other sleep books for weary parents.
