Regardless of what age we are, it’s important to get the sleep our bodies need. The National Sleep Foundation recommends 10 hours of sleep for children, and between 7 and 9 hours for adults.. Sleeping is one of the most important things you can do for your health, and unlike cutting out screen time, eating 5 servings of fruits and veggies a day, getting an hour of exercise, and not drinking sweetened beverages, getting more sleep isn’t something most people are unhappy to hear as a suggestion.
So why is sleep so important?
What if my child does not have time to get 10 full hours of sleep? These are guidelines, and it is okay to not reach the full amount every day. Use these numbers as goals your student should try to reach; remembering that sometimes it will not be possible.
