Generation Alpha and Sleep - LIVE Pediatric Sleep Workshop at Happy and Healthy Pediatrics in Mineola, NY
May 4th 12:00 PM to 4 PM (EDT)
First let us start by explaining what Generation Alpha is.
Futurist, demographer, and TEDx speaker Mark McCrindle is leading the campaign to call anyone born after 2010 a part of Generation Alpha. According to him, 2.5 million Alphas are born around the globe every week.
Alpha kids will grow up with iPads in hand, never live without a smartphone, and have the ability to transfer a thought online in seconds. These massive technological changes, among others, make Generation Alpha the most transformative generation ever, according to McCrindle.
What has this got to do with sleep?
Along with all the technological wonders at our children (and babies) fingertips, there is a downside. Less and less of a connection for a one-on-one interpersonal interaction: less touch, less eye contact, less time connecting between parent and child. Parents will need to be very mindful of how they interact with their child. How you are modeling what is an appropriate way of personal interaction with their child.
I would like to begin the surge of awareness around sleeping. I would like to show parents that they can help to create a time for this connection through sleep. Yes, I said sleep. Sleep is so much more then sleeping. It truly consists of is happening throughout the daytime schedule from eating, play, and bedtime these are all part of sleep. In this wonderful workshop that I have co-created with other top professional, you will learn how to build a wonderful secure attachment with your child.
We hope that you will join us on this journey, creating a loving bond around sleep, with your children of Generation Alpha.
