Make lasting changes for your whole family with this summit.
When you became a parent, you probably mentally prepared yourself for some sleep-deprived nights. You may have tolerated a few months or even years of sleep deficits, but you probably never expected it would last this long. If this resonates, please know you are not alone. Sleep is a skill, some kids have it in abundance, others have to learn. During this event, we will teach you how to teach your kids the skills of sleep.
Why This Summit Exists...
The Better Sleep for Kids Summit is brought to you by hosts Kim West and Renee Jain. How did this partnership between Kim, a world-renowned sleep expert, and Renee, a leading voice in the fight against childhood anxiety, evolve? Their communities had something in common: parents with kids who struggle to sleep. And the cries for help weren't just coming from parents with toddlers, but from parents with kids of all ages. In fact, the problem is so rampant, the Centers for Disease Control called insufficient sleep a public health epidemic. Kim and Renee feel compelled to help. As a first step, they've created The Better Sleep for Kids Summit. During this free event, 18 experts from around the world will share their expertise on how to help your kids sleep better.
