Why is sleep important for my child?

Sleep Deprived Kids

Many kids today are not getting enough sleep, as evidenced by kids falling asleep on the school bus and having difficulty focusing on assignments in class. When they are not walking around like a zombie, they are acting up and acting out. These kids are often mistaken as having attention deficit disorder (ADD) and given stimulants. If your child is showing symptoms of ADD, you may want to monitor how much sleep your child is getting. Try increasing their sleep time to 8-9 hours a night and see if their behavior improves.
