Free webinars on the importance of sleep for children

Free webinars on the importance of sleep for children

The second Planet Youth survey, conducted last December with 4,473 15 and 16-year-olds in all the schools in Galway, Mayo and Roscommon, highlighted that lack of sleep is one of the biggest preventable health issues for our children.

In response to this finding, Planet Youth has organised two separate free webinars that will hopefully help parents to better understand the issue whilst also providing some helpful ideas to use at home.

Both webinars will be delivered by Lucy Wolfe, a sleep consultant and a parent that has three teenagers herself, as well as one pre-teen.

Lucy is best known for the books she has written on sleep for young children but she has prepared some very useful material specifically for these webinars and the parents of children of school-going age.

The Importance of Sleep for Our National School Children webinar is on November 3 at 7pm.
