‘Tired out, helping you and your child have a good night’s sleep’
A workshop with Catherine Coulter from Bristol Child Parent Support.
Date: Saturday 12th May
Time: 10am – 12 noon
Cost: £35 per person
Venue: Muller House, Ashley Down
Research shows not having enough sleep can have a profound effect on your physical and emotional health.
Catherine Coulter explains:
“Ensuring everyone has a good night’s sleep is something I am passionate about. I know that sleep deprivation in children is a growing problem in the UK and across the world, there is some evidence to show that children’s bedtimes are getting later and the duration is less. The lack of sleep is impacting on children’s capacity to concentrate, learn and remain at a healthy BMI.”
Your child may be struggling right now, here are some symptoms to look out for.
Sleep deprivation Signs:
