Teens who get less than seven hours of sleep a night are more likely to engage in risky behavior, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study.
Lack of sleep could lead to sleepiness, memory and thinking problems, difficulty concentrating, mood changes, etc.
Teens should be having between 7 to 9 hours of sleep.
Evidence is mounting that teens should start school later. So why aren't they?
Does your teen have trouble falling asleep at night? Is he or she sleepy during the day? Find out if it's just a normal part of adolescence, or if something else is to blame.
It does way more than make you tired.
