“Night-time is a gen­uine magic po­tion. It is when growth hor­mones are se­creted. Mus­cles rest, the brain builds up its strength and cells are re­gen­er­ated,” ex­plains re­lax­ation ther­a­pist Stéphanie Cou­turier. Not to men­tion that it is also when all those lit­tle scratches, cuts and wounds get a chance to heal over.

Dis­rupted sleep will have a di­rect im­pact on a child’s growth. For­tu­nately, Cou­turier’s book Aidez votre en­fant à bien dormir (Marabout) pro­vides some ideas and prac­ti­cal an­swers for help­ing par­ents to en­sure their chil­dren get a good night’s sleep.
