Sleep Disorders

If you’re a parent of an adolescent child, chances are you’ve wondered why it’s so difficult to get him or her out of bed in the morning. The answer is that many teenagers are suffering from chronic insufficient sleep due to schedules jam-packed with homework, extra-curricular activities and sports. To avoid this, experts at Goryeb Children’s Hospital recommend that parents work with their children to prioritize sleep and make adjustments to their nighttime routine. These can be as simple as avoiding caffeinated drinks late in the day, putting away electronic devices at night and keeping to a regular bedtime.
