At this stage, your child is slowly getting accustomed to the nuances of life, including the plethora of tolls that come with it. To ensure he is able to cope with everyday changes and challenges, you must ensure he gets adequate sleep.
Sleep is that boon of nature, which helps one's body relax and prepare for the hassle of the next day. For kids, sleep is even more essential since their bodies are not yet fully prepared for the tolls of everyday life!
What you need to know
The average kid has a busy day. There's school, taking care of pets, running around with friends, going to sports practice or other activities, and doing homework. By the end of the day, his body needs a break. Sleep allows his body to rest for the next day.
Everything that's alive needs sleep to survive. Even your dog or cat curls up for naps. Animals sleep for the same reason you do — to give your body a tiny vacation.
The brain needs Zzzzzzzs
Your body and your brain need sleep in order to work effectively and efficiently.
Majority of the kids of this age get about 9.5 hours sleep every night, but experts suggest that most kids need 10-11 hours sleep each night.
So, make sure your little champ gets ample amount of sleep in order to lead a happy and healthy life!
