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.

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.Where To Find Heather and Julie:  Website: The Happy Sleeper https://www.thehappysleeper.comBook: Generation Sleepless: Why Tweens and Teens Aren't Sleeping Enough and How We Can Help ThemFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheHappySleeper/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thehappysleeper/Find more encouragement, wisdom, and resources: FacebookJoin our CommunityFind awesome resources on MOTTs UniversityInstagramSign up for our Moms of Tweens and Teens newsletter HERE
