Insomnia in Children
The term insomnia is defined as having difficulty initiating and/or maintaining sleep. It can be transient, as when it occurs after some traumatic event, or it can be chronic. It is generally not considered a problem unless it leads to functional daytime impairment. In children, it is often referred to as "behavioral insomnia," and it is most commonly due to poor sleep hygiene and parental failure to address bedtime problems and night waking appropriately.
