In short, my sleep philosophy is that a child needs adequate sleep to be their absolute best selves. A rested child is a happy, healthy, curious and energetic child who is eager to learn. This isn’t my opinion, it’s a scientific fact. Sleep is not a luxury, it is one of our basic survival needs. We need food, water, shelter, clothing and sleep for our bodies and minds to perform adequately. This is true for all ages. The Sleep Sense Program and Slumber Time Sleep Consulting support these truths and put emphasis on accommodating different parenting styles.
