How Your Teen Can Outsmart Insomnia

How Your Teen Can Outsmart Insomnia

It's back-to-school season, when late nights and late mornings no longer work. How can we help resistant teens get back on track with their schedules? Dr. Cara Ooi of Decode Insomnia is here to help.

In this episode, we discuss…

  • What makes sleep so hard for teens?
  • Is the 8-10 recommended hours of sleep realistic?
  • Body clock, negative associations with bed, and CBT-I to help sleep
  • What do we do when we know our kids aren’t sleeping enough?
  • What makes teens more receptive to changing their habits?
  • …and much more!
