I have just read this lovely recommendation from a mother to a child with ADHD on Amazon

ADHD Children and sleep

So many children with ADHD have a hard time falling asleep. Their busy minds are keeping them awake. Helping them sleep more is crucial for how they cope with their challenges. So happy my book The Children’s Meditations In my heart can help.

“For children with ADHD, poor sleep (too little sleep or symptoms of sleep disorders) may profoundly impact ADHD symptoms. In fact, one study found that treating sleep problems may be enough to eliminate attention and hyperactivity issues for some children. Children and adults behave differently as a result of sleepiness. Adults usually become sluggish when tired while children tend to overcompensate and speed up. For this reason, sleep deprivation is sometimes confused with ADHD in children. Children may also be moody, emotionally explosive, and/or aggressive as a result of sleepiness. In a study involving 2,463 children aged 6-15, children with sleep problems were more likely to be inattentive, hyperactive, impulsive, and display oppositional behaviors.”

Watch your energy

For many parents to children with ADHD bedtime is chaotic. The trick to get the “The Children’s Meditations In my Heart” to work with your child is to stay calm, loving and don’t get annoyed if your child isn’t calm. This is especially important when you have a stressful day. I talk much more about how important our energy as parents is around bedtime in this video:

“My 7 year old has Autism and Adhd and suffers very bad with anxiety, the last 3mths it has taking him longer to get to sleep sometimes 11.30 pm. I read him the first story tonight for the first time and he didn’t get back out of bed and he was asleep on 10mins long may it last. Thank you.”

“Your book is amazing!!! And it also came into our lives just at the right time. We desperately needed the meditations at this point. The kids love it and I am seeing the almost immediate transformations with my girls and our relationship. And we are still only at the first meditation! we are very much looking forward to go through it all, it’s like going on a love adventure. I am absolutely going to announce it on my fb profile for all my other friends to see. Everyone should have one in their home. Again, thank you so much for this gift. You are doing an amazing job. Bit by bit you are helping to change the world.”
