Can you tell me about who to do about snoring children?

In brief: Common: get followup

Tonsils can often grow faster than a kid does until they are about 7-8 ; any infections will add to the size.
Snoring kids need to be monitored for sleep problems ; occasionally will need a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea. If you hear gaps in the kids snoring of more that 15 sec, record it ; see your pcp/ent about a study. This might need a little more time to improve but surgery may be needed.
