Is It Normal For A 9yo To Sleep In The Same Bed As A Parent

This is a personal choice for each family. The question simply is - what do the parents want. If you don't mind, fine. If you do mind, then get to work on easing your children back into their beds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The AAP, in your: Hometown, has a healthy child app that addresses sleep issues. In many cultures, the "family bed" is a necessity. Infants who learn to fall asleep in their own beds by 1-4 months consolidate sleep & night-wake less. Co-sleeping can impede a child's development of independent self-calming skills, if it's not a cultural norm. Family therapy would help everyone get to sleep in his/her own bed. ...Read more
What is the best way to teach a 3yo child to sleep in his bed and not to move to parents bed every night?
Persistence: A 3 year old can wear a parent out on anything - they have nothing better to do with their life, so if they want something (to sleep in your bed) they usually have much more persistance and stamina to hold out than you do. When you decide enough is enough, you have to commit to never letting them come into your bed - even if it means you have to get up 100 times a night to put them back in theirs! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 9 year old son wraps his bed sheet completely around his head when sleeping. Any idea why he would do this?
Comfortable humidity: Your exhaled-air is perfect in moisture balance thus comfortable to the nose during colder/drier months as in many nights of winter. Covering the head traps moisture and thus more comfortable to breath via nose. The sheets are quite thin and air can pass through with ease, thus not concerning for oxygenation problem. Mine kids do same, as i too at times... ...Read more

My 9 year old was prescribed atarax (hydroxyzine) 25mg to help her sleep at night. Can anyone tell me more about this medication?
I am 16. I get 8hrs. of sleep everynight. But don't feel like I am getting enough. My parents shake me but I still do not get up. What do I do?
Could be normal, but: daytime drowsiness after 8 hours sleep may indicate interrupted sleep pattern. See your pediatrician to determine if a sleep study is in order. You might also try downloading a sleep app to see if you toss and turn during sleep (though these apps don't always work 100%).

Is it safe for my teenager to sleep with loud music on his headphones? And its not the soft music that a parent would like them to listen to!
No: Anytime a teen listens to hard loud music thru headsets may lead to hearing loss. Plus listening to music with words or tv keeps the brain stimulated as hearing never quits processing. Try substituting a sleep sound machine as many of us sleep better with constant droning. Like any bad habit be prepared for resistance! Teens never think bad things will happen. Be patient but firm on your request. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
