One in three French people is badly ill and dozens of people have to take sleeping pills. Studies show that we are not able to sleep enough. Less than six hours are the third part of the French language, but we need an average of seven to eight hours of sleep.
Children and teenagers are more disturbing. This is because parents return to work and delay the sleeping of children to use them, or because of the proliferation of teenage room screens that prevent sleep. Result: 1:30 to 2 hours for sleep teenagers and half an hour for younger. Although the average four-year-olds have an average of 12 hours of sleep, 10 to 10 years and 8 to 18 years of age.
Is not serious enough to sleep? According to Sylvie Royant-Parole, a Morphée network psychiatrist and president of managing sleep disorders, it can have a significant impact on everyday life: attention and learning disabilities at school, behavioral disorders: restless children, agitated adolescents, mood swings, not to mention obesity or diabetes risk, as well as reduced immune defenses. In short, in any case, it is necessary to avoid the lack of sleep for a long time.
So how? The Morphée Network has created a website dedicated to sleeping under the age of 18, with specific solutions approved by the Scientific Committee and discussion forums. One rule that must be remembered is the regularity of sleep rhythm. The youngest children have to put the children to sleep in a certain time to avoid overly exciting games in the evening and to think about setting up a bedtime ritual to make the baby safe. This ritual should be short, otherwise the child felt that you do not want to leave him alone.
Adolescents will always try to push the boundaries and, therefore, time to fall asleep. Parents should apply regular bedtime. And at the weekend, in no way allow your child to sleep until the end of lunch. Two hours to sleep, no more, otherwise a biological clock is drinking. And it's mandatory to teach teens to disconnect the screens at least an hour before bed.
