My guest this week is Dr. Michael Breus, a double board-certified clinical psychologist, and clinical sleep specialist. He's an expert resource for major publications, has written 3 books and is frequently featured on TV, doing more than 200 interviews a year. He's also been in private practice for over 18 years.

In this episode, Dr. Breus shares how sleep affects behavior. He walks us through how much sleep kids and teens need in order to function optimally. He also shares tips on how to develop better sleep routines. We discuss the common factors that affect quality of sleep in positive and negative ways like the use of electronics, lack of bedtime routine and caffeine vs exercise, reading, meditation, and a calming sleep environment. We also cover recommendations for night terrors and bedwetting.
