February Counselor News

Repeats from Last Week...Since We Have Not Been Here Much!

Is Your Child Getting Enough Sleep?

One of the most helpful things parents can do to help set children up for success at school is to make sure they are consistently getting enough sleep. Studies have shown that kids who regularly get an adequate amount of sleep have improved attention, behavior, learning, memory, and overall mental and physical health. Establishing a consistent bedtime routine is important. The routine should ideally start at the same time every night.

  • Dim the lights
  • Stop use of electronics/screens at least an hour before bed
  • Limit caffeine
  • Take a warm bath or shower
  • Do a quiet family activity such as reading a short book
  • If your child wakes up during the night, walk them back to their room with as little commotion as possible.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:

  • Children 3-5 years old: 10-13 hours
  • Children 6-12 years old: 9-12 hours

**See chart below for suggested bedtimes based on age.
