From the author of Raising Your Spirited Child, the award-winning bestseller that has helped millions, a pioneering, research-based guide for parents to help their children get the sleep they need.

Does your child refuse to cooperate in the morning? Does he or she get into trouble for not listening? Are you finding that your child resists sleep and loses it over seemingly insignificant issues?

You are not alone. An estimated 69 percent of American infants, children, and teens are sleep deprived. Studies have shown that sleep deficits can contribute to hyperactivity, distraction, forgetfulness, learning problems, illness, accidents, and disruptive behaviors. Often what our misbehaving kids really need isn't more consequences or more medication, but more sleep.

Sleepless in America offers weary and frustrated parents a helping hand and an exciting new approach to managing challenging behaviors by integrating research on stress, sleep, and temperament with practical strategies. Dr. Mary has helped millions with her effective parenting tips and insights, and her five-step approach enables parents to help their tired and wired children get the sleep they so desperately need.
