Based on Pearson’s r,there were significant positive bidirectional relationships between bedtime resistance (rs=0.129, p<0.019), parasomnias (rs = 0.298, p < 0.005), sleep disordered breathing (rs = 0.295, p < 0.005), CSHQ total score (rs=0.144, p<0.022) on the one hand, and children’s epilepsy severity on the other.
