Why do school children require at least 9 hours of sleep?

Why do school children require at least 9 hours of sleep?

Not sure: Exactly why people need certain amounts of sleep--or any at all--remains an ongoing area of study. Individual variability it quite high, but generally younger individuals need more sleep than older folk. About 9-10 hours is usually a good target for children. A good measure is how easily they awake in the morning (especially non-school days). Hard to rouse in the morning: not enough sleep. ...Read more

Counseling: Report to the campus counseling center. Depression in college is very common because of all the changes that ollege students have to go through adjusting from the impact of moving from their small towns or big cities or wherever else to college life, and stepping toward autonomy. It often represents too much change into short period of time. Counseling likely will be of benefit. ...Read more

My 12 yr. Old son falls asleep doing schoolwork, homework, and chores; but is alert when watching t.V. Or playing video games, is this adhd?

My 12 yr. Old son falls asleep doing schoolwork, homework, and chores; but is alert when watching t.V. Or playing video games, is this adhd?

Maybe: Tv and video games are geared for a 4 second attention span. Most 2 year olds have longer attention spans than that. The 4 second attention span keeps your son alert via a neural reflex. It also lowers his attention span for the real world. Research states of those who watch 1 hour a day 9% will lower their attention span to add levels. 2 hours lowers 18% and 3 hrs 27%. Limit both to 45 min/day. ...Read more
