Support Groups and Counseling
Parents should be advised to examine the adequacy of the child's sleep. Parents should be educated about the importance of establishing a consistent bedtime routine and maintaining a consistent wake-up time.
Additionally, parents should be instructed to make the child's room a safe environment and to provide barriers that prevent the child from impulsively leaving the room and going into environments that could lead to injury. Potential sources of sleep disturbance should also be eliminated.
