The pandemic has affected our children in so many ways, including their sleep patterns. With new school routines and quarantining, sleep has fallen to the waste side, and bedtimes are all over the place.
Sleep has actually been on the decline in recent years in our kids. Listen as Dr. Cora Collette Breuner talks about the ongoing mental health crisis that contributes to sleep issues, managing wake-up times (even on the weekends), and of course, cutting that screen time at night.
Dr. Cora Collette Breuner is a member of the Division of Adolescent Medicine and the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Department at Seattle Children’s Hospital. She is a Professor of Pediatrics and Adjunct Professor of Orthopedics and Sports Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
