    Out of every 24 hours newborns should sleep 15 to 18 hours 1 month - 12 months 14-15 hours 1-3 years 12-14 hours 3-6 years 10-12 hours 7-12 years 10-11 hours 12-18 years 8-9 hours 90 percent of teenagers report sleeping less than the recommended hours “A loss of one hour of sleep is equivalent to [the loss of] two years of cognitive maturation and development.” Dr. Avi Sadeh (Graphically can you show that this means a 6th grader on too little sleep will have the cognitive abilities of a 4th grader) What’s behind lack of sleep? Homework Busy schedules/late-night activities TV, cell phone, computer use Parents that don’t enforce bedtimes Sleep disorders like sleep walking and night terrors Keep electronics out of bedrooms (Graphic of laptops, cell phones, tvs, handheld video games) Lack of sleep can lead to: cranky kids weight gain inability to concentrate slower response time weakened immune system lack of growth and of course...being tired Because children’s brains are a work-in-progress until the age of 21, and because much of that work is done while a child is asleep, this lost hour appears to have an exponential impact on children that it simply doesn’t have on adults. - Po Bronson, NY Mag Angie’s List has Pediatrician Reviews
