Chloe needs a holiday. She's sick of making wedding dresses, her partner Philip has troubles at work, and the whole family wants a break. Her wealthy friend Gerard has offered the loan of his luxury villa in Spain--perfect. Hugh is not a happy man. His immaculate wife Amanda seems more interested in her new kitchen than in him, and he works so hard to pay for it, he barely has time for his children. Maybe he'll have a chance to bond with them on holiday. His old friend Gerard has lent them a luxury villa in Spain--perfect. Both families arrive at the villa and realize the awful truth--Gerard has double-booked. What no one else realizes is that Chloe and Hugh have a history; and as tensions rise within the two families, old passions resurface. It seems that Gerard's 'accidental' double booking may not be an accident after all...

A riveting look at how the early modern world revolutionized sleep and its relation to body, mind, soul, and society Drawing on diverse archival sources and material artifacts, Handley reveals that the way we sleep is as dependent on culture as it is on biological and environmental factors. After 1660 the accepted notion that sleepers lay at the mercy of natural forces and supernatural agents was challenged by new medical thinking about sleep s relationship to the nervous system. This breakthrough coincided with radical changes shaping everything from sleeping hours to bedchambers. Handley s illuminating work documents a major evolution in our conscious understanding of the unconscious."

How old is too old for children to sleep with their parents? If this question even needs to be asked, odds are it's too old. Yet millions of parents struggle with this issue every single night, literally losing sleep over it. Half of all preschoolers sleep with their parents, and nearly a quarter of all school-aged children do so as well. It's no wonder we're a nation of sleep-deprived kids and adults. In this book, acclaimed psychologist Valerie Levine, Ph.D., helps parents set bedtime boundaries and stick to them. With quizzes designed to identify each family's specific challenges, Dr. Levine's practical, hands-on guide reveals how to break the co-sleeping habit no matter what the age or the circumstances of the child. In doing so, parents learn not only how to handle this tough issue, but also receive the tools they need to face similar parenting issues down the road.

Why the modern world forgot how to sleep Why is sleep frustrating for so many people? Why do we spend so much time and money managing and medicating it, and training ourselves and our children to do it correctly? In Wild Nights, Benjamin Reiss finds answers in sleep's hidden history--one that leads to our present, sleep-obsessed society, its tacitly accepted rules, and their troubling consequences. Today we define a good night's sleep very narrowly: eight hours in one shot, sealed off in private bedrooms, children apart from parents. But for most of human history, practically no one slept this way. Tracing sleep's transformation since the dawn of the industrial age, Reiss weaves together insights from literature, social and medical history, and cutting-edge science to show how and why we have tried and failed to tame sleep. In lyrical prose, he leads readers from bedrooms and laboratories to factories and battlefields to Henry David Thoreau's famous cabin at Walden Pond, telling the stories of troubled sleepers, hibernating peasants, sleepwalking preachers, cave-dwelling sleep researchers, slaves who led nighttime uprisings, rebellious workers, spectacularly frazzled parents, and utopian dreamers. We are hardly the first people, Reiss makes clear, to chafe against our modern rules for sleeping. A stirring testament to sleep's diversity, Wild Nights offers a profound reminder that in the vulnerability of slumber we can find our shared humanity. By peeling back the covers of history, Reiss recaptures sleep's mystery and grandeur and offers hope to weary readers: as sleep was transformed once before, so too can it change today.

Cinderella and Prince Charming shared a bed after their happily ever after wedding, right? After all, isn't that what happy, loving partners do? 'Not always, in fact, not often,' says Jennifer Adams, the author of Sleeping Apart (Not Falling Apart): How to Get a Good Night's Sleep and Keep Your Relationship Alive. She believes that sleeping together can often cause more sleep deprivation amongst couples than anything except a newborn baby. Many couples have difficulty sleeping in the same bed as a result of one partner's disruptive behaviours such as snoring, restlessness, or a preference for watching TV and/or reading late into the night. Sleeping Apart, Not Falling Apart offers couples practical solutions to having separate beds or bedrooms while maintaining a loving and caring relationship.

Infant Sleep Arrangements in the First Year

Co-sleeping, defined as parents sleeping with their infants in the same bed or in the same room, is a widespread parenting practice across the world. In Western cultures, however, co-sleeping is not strongly endorsed. Past studies in Western countries have reported the negative impact of co-sleeping practices on infant sleep, family life, and childrens socio-emotional development. However, additional studies have not supported the premise that co-sleeping undermines childrens healthy development and sleep quality. This suggests that infant sleep arrangements per se may not be a determinant of child development. This dissertation aimed to explicate the contradictions in literature regarding the consequences of infant sleeping arrangements and examined the linkages between infant sleeping arrangements, family life, and infant sleep and development, through cultural and family systems perspectives. Data were drawn from a larger NIH-funded study of 167 families. Study I used multilevel modeling to examine the associations between parenting beliefs, sleeping arrangements, and mothers perception of infant sleep behavior, and the ethnic group differences in these associations. The results suggested that mothers who co-slept with their infants beyond 6 months (persistent co-sleeping) were more likely than mothers who moved their infants to a separate room by 6 months to report greater frequency of the infants night waking and perceive the childs night waking to be problematic. Further, when mothers were more likely than fathers to endorse close parent-child relationships, mothers perceptions of positive co-parenting decreased and negative coparenting increased among persistent co-sleeping families. However, these results were found only among European American families. Sleeping arrangements were unrelated to mothers perception of infant sleep behavior among ethnic minority families. In addition, the association between inter-parental discrepancies in parenting beliefs and coparenting quality among ethnic minority families was not significant. Cross-lagged panel models further suggested that when European American mothers perceived a poor alliance with their partner, they brought their infant to the parents bedroom. Built on family systems theory, Study II examined whether sleeping arrangements per se or family processes were associated with families well-being in the first year and childrens socio-emotional development at a later age. The results of the latent linear growth models for two parallel processes indicated that greater coparenting quality over time was predictive of a reduction in mothers depression over time. This association was found, independent of whatever sleeping arrangements parents used across the first year. Further, the results of the latent linear growth models suggested that greater coparenting quality over time was predictive of childrens fewer externalizing problems, more regulation, and more competency at a later age, independent of whatever sleeping arrangements parents used across the first year. Indeed, sleeping arrangements were related to none of the child outcomes.Together, the results of this dissertation suggest that (1) it is not sleeping arrangements per se but a mismatch between cultural beliefs about sleep arrangements and what parents actually do that leads co-sleeping mothers to be sensitive to infant sleep behaviors and vulnerable to a risk for unfavorable family functioning, and (2) it is not sleeping arrangements per se but family processes that play an important role in parents well-being and childrens socio-emotional development. This dissertation provides new insights about the importance of culture and family functioning in studies involving infant sleeping arrangements. Parents, pediatric professionals, and parenting experts must focus less on arguing the benefits or pitfalls of particular sleeping arrangements and, instead, increase their awareness of the importance of the health of the family systems.
