If you have problems getting your kids to sleep, or getting them to sleep through the night, this is the perfect book for you. What is sleep? Can we blame natural circumstances for the chronic, pervasive sleep deficits that our children often suffer? Or, should we look to nurture - parenting styles and their effects on sleep patterns? To answer these important questions, Dr. Jennifer Smith draws on the findings of academic research and her vast experience as a practising cognitive, developmental and counselling psychologist. The strategies she offers to deal with debilitating sleep habits have been found to be indispensable to families. Written in a friendly style and brilliantly illustrated by Eloise Hairman, this book is both informative, entertaining, and easy to read when you're tired.
