The Tired Child: How Sleep and Sleep Breathing Can Change Your Child’s Life
Kids across the United States are experiencing a sleep crisis. Sometimes, they can’t sleep because of anxiety or too much screen time. But other times, the problem runs deeper.
For some children, the lack of high-quality, restful sleep is due to sleep-disordered breathing. When children can’t breathe properly, they can’t sleep. And a lack of sleep negatively impacts children’s healthy development and puts them in crisis.
The Tired Child provides parents and healthcare providers with a comprehensive look at pediatric sleep-disordered breathing. It dives into why sleep is so important and shares how to get kids the proper treatment if they have a sleep condition, like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
