The Science of Sleep in Childhood
July 2013 in Seattle

In this Science Cafe, join UW and the Seattle Children’s Research Institute’s Michelle Garrison, Ph.D., to discover why childhood sleep matters, and what we can all do to help kids get the best possible sleep.

Sometimes sleep seems to come hard to my 4 year old. If she takes a nap she will be up all night :(

My 2 year old takes a nap and sleeps very well-I guess all children are different.

My husbands whole family has a hard time sleeping...his Mother does too. It has been a life long battle and you can see that the lack of sleep in their childhood has probable had an impact on their overall health.
