Healthy sleep improves the memory and attention of children, so they are better able to learn. Well rested children are less irritable and impulsive, so they are better able to self-regulate and have improved mood. They are also more physically active, so they are in better overall health.
Sleep is important for both physical and cognitive growth in children. Both the quality and quantity of your child’s sleep is important.
Sleep problems are one of the most common concerns for parents. In fact, sleep problems have been estimated to affect 30% of children.
