Helping Children Develop Healthy Sleep Patterns
Steele Community Room
Waterbury Municipal Building, 28 N. Main Street, Waterbury
March 19, 6 – 8 PM
A presentation/workshop for parents, providers and teachers by Scott Noyes. The results of children not getting enough sleep are astonishing. Sleep deprivation can have serious effects on physical health and mental impairment. Inadequate rest impairs our ability to think, handle stress, maintain a healthy immune system, and moderate our emotions. The loss of one hour of sleep for a child each night is equivalent to two years of cognitive maturation and development. In addition, sleep-deprived people fail to recall pleasant memories yet recall gloomy memories just fine. This presentation will review the facts about the importance of sleep and how to help children establish and maintain healthy sleep habits. $5/person suggested donation. Please RSVP 244-5980. Space is limited.
