The Importance of Sleep for our Children


The importance of sleep for our children

The Planet Youth survey, conducted last December with 4,473 15 and 16-year-olds in all the schools in Galway, Mayo and Roscommon, highlighted that lack of sleep is one of the biggest preventable health issues for our children.

In response to this finding, Planet Youth has organised two separate free webinars that will hopefully help parents better understand the issue whilst also providing some helpful ideas to use at home.  Both webinars will be delivered by Lucy Wolfe, a sleep consultant and a parent that has three teenagers herself, as well as one pre-teen.  Lucy is best known for the books she has written on sleep for young children, but she has prepared some very useful material specifically for these webinars and the parents of older children.

The importance of sleep for our national school children is on the 3rd of November at 7pm.

It’s designed to be of use to parents of all national school aged children. The link to register is: https://event.webinarjam.com/channel/PlanetYouthSleep

The importance of sleep for our teenagers is on the 11th of November at 7pm.

This webinar is for parents that have children in post-primary and the link to register for this one is: https://event.webinarjam.com/channel/PlanetYouthTeenSleep
