Sleep & Attention Issues
A British research study found that three times as many children with issues focusing have difficulty falling or staying asleep. Mainly children with attention challenges have trouble "settling down" at the end of the day, affecting their ability to get proper rest.
While adults get sluggish when they're overtired, children actually speed up, exhibiting symptoms such as: focus issues and behavioral issues. Lack of sleep can affect all aspects of a child's life, from health and education to relationships and well-being. The good news is that an Australian study found that kids with attention challenges who were given behavioral sleep interventions actually showed an improvement in their symptoms.
