If you've ever had challenges with Daylight Saving Time (DST) and parenting, you’re not alone. Who knew 60 minutes would make such a difference?
"That hour is even more difficult for kids to deal with than flying cross-country to a whole new time zone," says Jodi Mindell, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia who specializes in pediatric sleep.
