Teach Teens to Sleep

Once upon a time, I relied heavily on the book, Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems by Richard Ferber. I had to actually teach my babies to sleep through the night.  Then, in the blink of an eye it seems, the babies have become teenagers.  You would think that teenagers would be capable of sleeping through the night.  Often, though, it seems like they were only capable of sleeping through the day!


It's important to teach your children about the importance of sleep.  The issue becomes larger and more serious as they grow older and go to college. Teaching them about sleep early can help!  I suggest having your children write a paper about the importance of sleep, perhaps even once per year. Hopefully by the time they graduate high school, they will actually have some concept of the necessity!  It can really help them succeed once they get into college, so it really is an important life skill.

To start the conversation, share these articles with your teens.

Sorry, Joelle! Try to choose a quieter dorm, and ask for a quieter roommate

Great ideas - now how do you teach your teens to sleep in spite of noise? The only thing I hated about college was there was only one place in the whole world where I could sleep, yet that was the noisiest place on campus in spite of so-called quiet hours. Friends' apartments weren't much better. Earplugs didn't help. Any suggestions?
