Getting the family to all the places they need to be while finishing all the projects that come along with having kids can often mean sleep is pushed wayside. However, sleep is crucial in not only getting all of the components of your day to line up smoothly, but also to nurture your relationship with your children. Lack of sleep can result in feelings of irritability in both children and parents, often resulting in meltdowns on both sides during seemingly minor setbacks. Over half of parents report yelling at their children when they, themselves, have had fewer than eight hours of sleep. 88 percent of parents report that their children’s mood receives a substantial impact when he child has not had enough pillow time.
