The Better Behavior Show with Dr. Nicole Beurkens

Nov 23, 2021

My guest this week is Dr. Chris Winter

In this episode, Dr. Chris and I discuss the importance of his new book, The Rested Child: Why Your Tired, Wired or Irritable Child May Have a Sleep Disorder and How To Help

Learn more about the prevalence of sleep disorders in children, the detriment it has on life-long health, the frequency of dismissal in the medical community, and what it actually means to have disordered sleeping versus just a bad night of sleep. Most importantly, we discuss the warning signs in behavior and development that may be a signal to investigate sleep with your primary care providers and various sleep specialists.
