Few preschoolers are referred to mental health practitioners with a primary complaint of sleep problems. More commonly, friends, relatives, popular media, or pediatricians advise parents concerning children’s sleep problems. In a recent community survey, parents of young children were asked where they would seek help if their child had a sleep problem: 91% indicated they would ask family or relatives, 87% said they would seek advice from friends, 87% said they would seek information from books or magazines, 71% indicated they would talk to a nurse or physician, and only 47% said they would seek help from a psychologist or mental health professional (Johnson, 1991).
