Chalk Talk: The Importance of Sleep
Studies show that kids who don’t get enough sleep are inattentive at school, cranky, moody and don’t perform as well on exams. With after school activities, sports, homework and time for family and friends, it’s easy for kids to miss out on time to sleep because of everything else they have to get done. But setting regular times for your children to go to sleep is extremely important. Regular bedtimes help maintain the body’s circadian rhythm, which is important for a child’s cognitive development. Children need between 8-11 hours of sleep a night, so try to plan their days accordingly. If you need to move some of their weekly chores to the weekend to give them a few more minutes to sleep during the week, do it. The benefits of the extra sleep will far outweigh the pile of dirty clothes on their floor!
