Study after study has shown that not getting enough sleep can affect just about every aspect of a person’s life, from driving to working to even studying. Above all, studies show that in young people, the importance is of sleep is paramount.
Today on TeachHUb.com, frequent contributing writer Janelle Cox tackles the issue of sleep in adolescents, and notes that the proper amount of sleep is inexorably linked to better academic performance.
She also explains why kids aren’t getting enough sleep (technology can partially be blamed), and lays out proper amounts of sleep for kids of all ages.
Janelle sums up her article thusly: “To develop healthy bedtime habits for children, parents should try establishing a regular sleep schedule, keep technological devices out of the bedroom, and as limit sugary, caffeinated beverages before bed to help children get a better night’s sleep.”
