Temperament is everything. . .
when it comes to parenting and sleep
In my work as a sleep consultant and researcher, I have found that temperament may be the key factor in whether a child sleeps easily or not. Temperament is rarely—if ever—factored into research studies or parenting advice, even though higher levels of just about every aspect of temperament (sensory sensitivity, perceptiveness, intensity, alertness) make sleep harder.
