When your child's anxiety keeps you up at night
Speaker Dr. Sandra Pimentel and Dr. John Guerry
Today we’ll be discussing sleep difficulties in children—more specifically in kids who struggle with anxiety.
Childhood anxiety disorders are the most prevalent form of psychiatric problem, affecting between 10-20% of kids. Common difficulties associated with these syndromes are sleep disturbances. These problems can range from various forms of insomnia, to nightmares, to nighttime enuresis (bedwetting), and difficulty separating from parents at bedtime.
