New Year, New You: Get Better Sleep

Sleep is not only important for your physical health; it affects your mental wellbeing. This can be especially vital to children who attend school.

Here are three things parents should know about the direct relationship between sleep and learning:

  • During quality sleep, your child’s brain stores the information he or she learned that day so it’s available for recall at a later date.
  • Sleep enhances your child’s learning and problem-solving skills; it helps them pay attention, make decisions, and be creative.
  • Lack of sleep is linked to trouble with decision making, problem solving, behavior and coping.
