Ready for some big revelations when it comes to teens and their sleep? In this episode Sleep Expert Alanna McGinn breaks down the top six factors affecting teen sleep and what you can do about it. First of all, we want to start by saying that parents should approach teen sleep just as you may have approached sleep when your kid was a baby or a toddler. Even as a teen, there are biological factors at play influencing sleep, and yes, your teen may need help learning how to self soothe before bed and even how to build good sleep habits.
One of the biggest barriers to helping teens get the sleep they need is often their parents! We know it can be frustrating to try and drag your teen out of bed for school, but we really believe that when you take the time to learn more about teens and sleep, both you and the teenagers living in your house will be that much happier.
