Raymond Counseling
for Parents

 Some parents say their kids are OK without much sleep.  Babies who won’t take a nap and toddlers who fight bedtime may give the impression they just aren’t tired.

New research presents compelling proof that the kids aren’t OK.  And if the children aren’t sleeping, at least one parent is likely sleep-deprived as well.

New sleep research by Dr. Sabina Seehagen (Department of Child and Adolescent Psychology at Ruhr University, West Germany) shows that sleep plays a fundamental role in early memory processing.  She believes that what happens inside the sleeping brain  must be vital to life itself.
