Description

Teenagers are overloaded, strapped for time, and often asked to wake far earlier than they should because of school start times. It’s no surprise they’re sleep-deprived as a result, with far-reaching consequences. Now, parenting journalist Lisa L. Lewis, who helped spark the first law in the nation requiring healthy school start times for adolescents, has written a reader-friendly book for parents who want to help their exhausted teens. In The Sleep-Deprived Teen, Lewis synthesizes the research to provide parents of teens and tweens with information and strategies. https://www.lisallewis.com/ 'The Sleep Deprived Teen' is available to purchase via Midtown Scholar Bookstore.

 

Lisa L. Lewis, MS, is a freelance journalist who covers the intersection of parenting, public health, and education. She played a key role in California’s new healthy school start times law, the first of its kind in the nation. Lewis is a frequent contributor to The Washington Post and has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic, TIME, the Los Angeles Times, Slate, and Your Teen, among others. She’s a parent to two teens, who inspire much of what she writes about—everything from concussions and heat stroke to school lockdowns to teenage sleep.
