Kids sleep: we all need help sometimes! #bedtimelive

This afternoon, in anticipation of the Bedtime Live Channel 4 show at 8pm this evening, four lovely bloggers hung out with me to chat about sleep; and the problems that they are facing with their children.

It was a great chat, where we all agreed that it seemed that some children, and teenagers in particularly, just perhaps don’t needs as much sleep as we think that they do – so should we really be pushing them for lights out at a particular time if its just not really in their nature?

Come join us on the hangout for a chat – an even better submit your questions for the show to the beat those bedtime blues hangout on Google Plus and get your questions answered on the show. Just use the hashtag #bedtimelive and comment on the post on the Google Plus KiddyCharts page.

We were joined by:

  • Fiona Cambouropoulos, from Coombe Mill
  • Christine Mosler, from Thinly Spread
  • Susanne Remic, from Ghostwriter Mummy
  • Rosie Shelley, who blogs at Rosie Scribble and is also the fabulous Parenting Community Manager at Google UK, and finally
  • Me of course from Stickers, Stars and Smiles (my personal blog) and KiddyCharts.


Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parenting magazine! Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!
