How sleep improves a child’s performance

January 12th, 2016

According to the New York Times article titled “We tell kids to ‘go to sleep!‘ it discussed the correlation between a child’s sleep habits and how it affects their ability to process and learn new information.

In this article, it discusses a variety of sleep studies that have been performed on children ages four to 12 years old. The post discusses how sleep restores and renews the body, in addition to performing maintenance on the mind. This maintenance assists in preserving memories from the day, and helping to reinforce new skills and information learned.

While there are dozens of reasons a child might not be getting adequate amount of sleep, this study proves that most parents did not know the actual recommended hours of sleep for a child, and how developing an evening routine can help improve overall sleep for both children and parents.

In addition to these features discussed in the article, children can get more sleep by sleeping on a custom mattress. At Schrader Mattress, we are able to create custom mattresses for children, so they can get a quality nights sleep, and live an overall healthier life.
