MomsEveryday: Sleep

Posted: Updated:

Sleep and school performance goes hand in hand, that's why getting enough shut-eye is crucial for kids.

Our brains are very busy while we're sleeping. And so lots of work is going on in terms of learning & storing information, and helping us get better at remembering what we learned that day but also at doing. At four, they need 11 hours of sleep. At 10, 10 hours of sleep. And then at 17, nine hours of sleep.

When our older kids aren't getting enough sleep, they may be overscheduled or have too much going on. Younger children may have trouble winding down because there's so much to explore, or can't fall asleep on their own.

It is recommended to keep sleep a priority, and adults should model good sleep behavior. For more ways to make your life easier visit Momseveryday.com
