Your parenting style may determine whether or not your child ends up with insomnia

Parenting has a huge influence on the sleep of our children. If we don't pay attention to how our kids are sleeping (and put the right level of importance on sleep), childhood sleeplessness can develop into insomnia and other health conditions.

I recently came across an older study that investigated whether there's a relationship between parenting styles and insomnia rates in teenagers.

The study involved 757 university students and found that those who had parents with a strict, uncompromising parenting style (authoritarian) were more likely to suffer from insomnia.

Those whose parents were more authoritative (firm but flexible) were less likely to be insomnia sufferers.

Interestingly, the parenting style of mothers and fathers influenced things as well. As a father's permissiveness increased, insomnia decreased - however permissiveness of mothers had no effect.
