The Happy Sleeper
A research-based guide to helping children do what comes naturally -- sleep through the night. Many parents feel pressured to ''train'' babies and young children to sleep. Sometimes hours are spent rocking, singing, and coaxing. But kids don''t need to be trained -- they''re built to sleep. Over time, all that cajoling can have the opposite effect to what is desired. Problems can arise when parents (with the best of intentions) overhelp or ''helicopter parent'' at night, overshadowing their baby''s biological ability to sleep well. In The Happy Sleeper, child-sleep experts Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright show parents how to avoid and undo cumbersome sleep habits. They provide guidance on how to be sensitive and nurturing, but also structured, so that your baby or young child can develop the skills they need in order to: fall asleep independently sleep through the night take healthy naps acquire natural, optimal sleep patterns for day and night. Using these methods, parents can guide their children in learning how to soothe themselves to sleep -- putting kids (and the whole family) on track to a full night''s sleep.

Generation Sleepless
An intimate glimpse inside a silent epidemic that is harming teens, and a pathway for parents to help them reclaim the restorative power of sleep. If you could protect your child from unnecessary anxiety, depression, and chronic stress, and foster a greater sense of happiness and well-being in their lives, wouldn''t you? In this book, the authors of The Happy Sleeper, the classic book on helping babies and young children develop healthy sleep habits, uncover one of the greatest threats to our teenagers'' physical and mental health: sleep deprivation. Caught in a perfect storm of omnipresent screens, academic overload, and unnecessarily early school-start times, our children are operating in a constant state of sleep debt while struggling to meet the demands of adolescence. In this essential book, Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright draw on the latest scientific research to reveal that today''s teenagers are, in fact, the most sleep-deprived population in human history. In fact, at a critical phase of development, many teens need more sleep than their younger siblings -- but they''re getting drastically less. Generation Sleeplessguides families in building healthy habits around sleep by: * establishing family agreements around sleep habits; * altering family practices around phones, social media, and screen time; * regaining overall equilibrium in the home; and * remaking bedtime routines Packed with years of research and in-depth reporting, Generation Sleeplessis a wake-up call for parents that equips them with the right tools to start a family conversation about sleep and to ultimately regain connection with their tweens and teens.
