A child who does not sleep well can affect the whole family. Parents can be left exhausted, unable to think clearly and struggling to cope with their daily activities. The child can be left feeling either tired or over-active, both signs of lack of sleep.
Brothers and sisters are also affected, feeling tired at school and sometimes resentful towards the sibling disturbing their sleep. If this continues over a long period of time it can have an adverse effect on the health and wellbeing of all members of the family
