With hurricane season setting in, I'd like to offer a timely reminder in considering your child's fears during an emergency or natural disaster. The American National Red Cross offers some tips for reducing and managing your child's fears before, during, and after a disaster. Check out their information here: Disaster Safety for Children

Did you know how much sleep is recommended for our children?  The American Academy of Sleep Medicine updated its recommendations for the amount of sleep children need to maintain better health, including to improve attention, behavior, learning, memory, emotional regulation, and physical and mental health.  I haven't noticed recommendations for parents yet:)!  Here you go...

·         Infants 4-12 months: 12-16 hr of sleep (including naps)

·         Children 1-2 yr of age: 11-14 hr (including naps)

·         Children 3-5 yr of age: 10-13 hr (including naps)

·         Children 6-12 yr of age: 9-12 hr

·         Teenagers 13-18 yr of age: 8-10 hr
