Sleep It Does A Family Good

With four children in our home, and two being teenagers the matter of sleep and the importance of getting enough of it, is a daily occurrence. It seemed so easy when they were little and we established a regular conservative bedtime. Mom and Dad had a few hours together every evening alone, and the children woke up refreshed and ready to start the day. And then life happened. Sports, youth activities, friends and projects and a myriad of other 'opportunities' would invariably steal away the hours of rest and sleep that we really need. How do we get back to a normal routine? Well, Focus on the Family, has just released a new book, published by Tyndale House Publishers, titled: Sleep, It Does A Family Good. In this book Dr. Archibald D. Hart gives an extensive plan, showing us how busy families can overcome sleep deprivation. He explains step by step that there is a way we can mix teenage activities, business commitments, travel, and other schedule changers and the result will be a much more balanced sleep bank. If you, like our family have faced these challenges I would encourage you to read this book. It is filled with ideas, and gives information charts and questionnaires so you can gauge how well you or your children are doing in the sleep department. I have been given a copy of this book for purpose of review, from Tyndale House Publishers, and I would give this book 4 stars.
