Sleep is a vital part of our lives. For adults, when we don’t get enough sleep, we are groggy, cranky, and tired. Our concentration isn’t so great, and we are more vulnerable to infections and illnesses. Like adults, children also need to get enough sleep. Younger kids require more sleep than older children, and they may need naps during the day.
When a child is sleep deprived, it can cause them to develop behavioral problems and become very cranky and moody. Their performance at school may suffer, and they aren’t as alert as they need to be to learn. That’s why it’s very important that you help your kids develop good sleep habits at an early age.
