Nearly 7 out of every 10 high school students sleep less than 8 hours on an average school night. Changes in the brain during adolescence alter teens’ internal body clocks. As parents know, most teens would prefer to go to bed late and wake up later, too.
In preparation for Sleep Awareness Week, March 2–8, share these articles and images on your Facebook page and Twitter feed. Help to educate parents, kids, and teens about the benefits of getting enough sleep.
For some interactive fun, promote The Sleep Game! Feel free to use this graphic in blogs, e-newsletters, and where ever else you promote health education.
As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. Thank you for being a KidsHealth partner!
