Sleep Advice for Children and Adults
Did you know that children who sleep near a small screen experience shorter sleep duration – 20.6 minutes less sleep each weekday compared with children that never sleep near a small screen? Or that children who sleep less tend to eat more which increases the risk of obesity and related health problems later in life? Adding just one hour of extra sleep decreases the chances of being overweight or obese by around 30%. Sleep is extremely important to support children’s development both physically and mentally. Establishing good sleep patterns can help children to meet their full potential. Our Good-Night Guide for Children is aimed at helping parents to develop awareness of the importance of sleep and offer advice around what to do to prevent sleep issues occurring. It is also packed full of tips on how to manage sleep issues that may arise and why a bed time is so important in supporting a child to relax.
