How to Help Your Child Get a Good Night’s Sleep

The first weeks back at school after the Christmas holidays can be difficult for kids as they adjust to new classes and routines. Sleep is one of the first areas to suffer when children are feeling unsettled. It takes time to get back into a regular sleep pattern after the long break, especially when the nights are still warm.

All these factors can lead to poor or interrupted sleep. On average, children aged between 3 – 5 years need 10 to 13 hours of sleep a night, while those aged 6 – 13 need 9 to 11 hours, and 14 – 17 year olds should be getting at least 8 to 10 hours a night.

Without enough sleep, children feel drained and exhausted. They don’t want to get up in the morning, and have problems concentrating at school, which may lead to behavioural issues. It’s vital to address sleep issues early before they affect learning.
