on Sleep with Dr. Valerie Crabtree and
The Wonder Weeks with Xaviera Plas
Dr. Dan Peters welcomes two new guests to his podcast with important information about the importance of sleep and the wonder of infant development.

The Importance of Sleep for Young People with Dr. Valerie Crabtree

Dr. Dan welcomes Dr. Valerie Crabtree of the acclaimed St. Jude's Research Hospital to discuss the importance of sleep for young people. Dr. Crabtree tells Dr. Dan, "Sleep is the third pillar of health, along with nutrition and movement, that keeps us healthy and balanced."

"We literally clean our brains while we sleep, washing away harmful toxins and making room for memories to be stored, " wrote Dr. Crabtree in a recent article. "In children and teenagers, poor or insufficient sleep is related to poorer organization, poorer memory, and academic difficulties."

Dr. Crabtree talks to Dr. Dan about grumpy teenagers, school start times, what the APA recommends, and her own experience raising teenage boys. Learn more  about Dr. Crabtree and her work.
