Getting kids to sleep at night can seem like constant battle. But you are not alone; 76% of parents are not happy with their child’s sleep habits and would change something if they could. In this video, Parenting Expert & Author Ann Pleshette Murphy explains how 2/3rds of children experience some sleeping problems at least a few times a week. Aside from being a mere annoyance, not being able to get to sleep can have a serious affect on your child’s school performance and behavior. Even when children do fall asleep in a timely manner, many suffer from night terrors and nightmares that can ruin a solid night’s sleep.
