Is Your Teen Getting Enough Sleep?

Teens often keep irregular schedules. They may wake up early to get to their prep school during the week, yet stay up late and sleep in on weekends. Unfortunately, the lack of a regular sleep schedule and not getting enough sleep overall can be detrimental to teens’ academic success. Sleep deprivation causes poor memory retention, concentration problems, and difficulty learning new things.

When you watch this informative video, you’ll learn that teens need about 9.5 hours of sleep each night, yet the majority of teens fail to get even 8.5 hours. This video offers some tips to help your teen improve his or her sleep habits.
