Re: helpful suggestions for sleeping better - for our teens

I wish my kids would still come & curl up next to me for the night. I tell that to parents of little ones who are feeling the guilts because their kids still sleep with them (usually brought on by someone criticising their parenting).

Same here @Ngaio-RO if my 17 year old daughter is having a really day, she will still come sleep with me.  It is a great comfort to us both.  On very rare occasions, we might watch a movie in my bed together then fall asleep.  I love how it brings us closer, and she usually has a really good nights sleep.

My daughter had some anxiety issues when she started high school. A psychologist diagnosed her with a condition called Pyrrole Disorder and started her on some vitamin supplements and one in particular for sleep. It's a natural supplement that helps with a number of health conditions. I've found it works brilliantly in helping her sleep and keeping her calm.

Hi @Snopea70, welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing what has worked for your daughter. 

 

I have just edited your comment as we cannot discuss medication names and details under our community guidelines here. We just need to be mindful that we do not know what medications others teens are on, or of any contradictions they might have with other medications or vitamins. 

 

It's a good suggestion though, and a discussion with the doctor or prescribing psychiatrist could be had about vitamins could aide in sleep.

Hey @Snopea70

 

What's Pyrrole Disorder? I've never heard of that before.
