Creating Healthy Sleep Habits with Tweens & Teens
Designed for parents of children aged 11 – 18.
When you are beyond the bath – brush teeth – bedtime routines and working to establish independence around sleep habits with your tween or teen.
Tweens and teens are actually hard-wired to stay up late and sleep in.
Pushing back on parents’ efforts to ensure a good night’s sleep leads to regular conflicts around getting to bed and getting up in the morning in time for school.
Add in concerns about how tech use affects sleep, and the full scope of challenges for parents and their tweens and teens comes into focus. How can parents and their kids work together to determine healthy sleep habits and decrease the level of conflict at home?
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
- Communicate your concerns and messages so your tween/teen can receive them
- Engage in problem-solving collaboratively
- Troubleshoot when your plans don’t work as expected
Registration includes access to the live webinar where you can ask questions, video/audio recordings posted the next day, and handouts/resources.

"... approaching this subject was a great balance of both concern and lightness, the instructor also brought a realistic approach to the topic, (i.e., yes, we're going to have meltdowns and, we're working to reduce them.)"
