Show Notes

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 the book, Generation Sleepless, Heather Turgeon and Julie Wright, authors of the bestseller, The Happy Sleeper, 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,  Generation Sleepless illustrates how our children are operating in a constant state of sleep debt while struggling to meet the demands of adolescence.

 Drawing on the latest scientific research, Generation Sleepless reveals that today’s teenagers are, in fact, the most sleep-deprived population in human history and, at a critical phase of development, need more sleep than their younger siblings. Yet, they’re getting drastically less.

What you will learn:

  • What is the ideal number of hours of sleep for teens?
  • The factors that steal teens' sleep.
  • What the impact is on teens due to lack of sleep.
  • Signs of sleeplessness for parents to look for in their kids.
  • Tips on how to help your teen get more sleep.
  • The importance of a wind-down routine, bedtime routine, and morning routine.
