Little ones need twelve to fourteen hours of sleep. Try to put your children on your schedule, having them wake when you do. Put them to bed earlier than you hit the sack.

Older kids need parental monitoring to put devices away. Set a good example and turn off your phone. Store devices outside the bedroom for optimal sleep hygiene.

Help them train their bodies for a regular bedtime and waking time. Encourage routines, like ten minutes of reading before bed. These triggers make late nights and time changes easier.

Listen as Dr. Natasha Burgert joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share the importance of sleep as your child grows up.
