Is your child getting enough sleep?

children enough sleep

Sleep deprivation poses a serious threat to our children’s health, safety and academic success, according to the Ohio Department of Education. Fewer than 15% of teens get the required sleep their bodies need. Here are some helpful guidelines to ensure your kids are getting proper rest:

• Stick to a sleep schedule – same bedtime and wake-up time.

• Practice a relaxing bedtime ritual, like reading or listening to quiet music.

• Sleep on a comfortable mattress and pillows.

• Avoid caffeine and large meals before bedtime.

• Sleep in a cool, dark and quiet room.

• Steer clear of electronic devices that stimulate the brain.
