Does your child get a good night’s sleep?

Sleep is essential for growth, development, and overall health and well-being. Poor sleeping habits can result in difficulty concentrating, poor school performance and hyperactivity, as well as mood swings and behavior problems. Up to 50% of children will experience some difficulty with sleep.1
