Study: Kids who get ‘quality’ sleep perform better at school

Healthy sleep habits: Establish a consistent bedtime routine, emphasize the need for a regular sleep schedule, keep television and computers out of bedrooms and teach children about healthy sleep habits.

The National Sleep Foundation recommends that children ages five to 12 get 10 -to -11 hours of sleep a night. (Teenagers need about 9 hours of sleep).  Researchers at McGill University and the Douglas Mental Health University Institute in Montreal found that children who had a better quality sleep performed better in math and languages.    http://goo.gl/ZE2rH5
