When a child has a sleep problem, a parent has a sleep problem too. In this course, Dr. Richard Delaney examines four types of sleep problems in children: fears about sleeping alone, frequent waking and roaming, nightmares and night terrors, and sleep problems and depression. He gives parents insights into the possible reasons for their child's problem behavior, and follows up with some practical and immediate steps they can take to deal with their child's particular type of problem behavior.
