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 just about every aspect of a spirited temperament (sensory sensitivity, perceptiveness, intensity, alertness) make sleep harder.
