Sleep deprivation isn't just a problem for adults. Children can struggle with it, too. A National Sleep Foundation (NSF) survey found 60 percent of children under age 18 complained of being tired during the day in the past year. Fifteen percent admitted falling asleep in school.
With poor or insufficient sleep, children can experience mood swings and have behavior problems. They can have increased hyperactivity and trouble with cognition. This can lead to problems in school.
How much sleep do kids need? Experts estimate children 5 to 12 years of age should get 10 to 11 hours of sleep per night. For teens, it’s 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep each night.
