    The Importance of Sleep with Our Students

    Sleep is no less important than food, drink, or safety in the lives of children. Although this may seem apparent, many of us actually do not allow our children to get the critical sleep they need to develop and function properly.

    If this is something you struggle with check out the book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Dr. Marc Weissbluth. He states "Sleep is the power source that keeps your mind alert and calm. Every night, sleep recharges the brain's battery. Sleeping well increases brainpower just as weight lifting builds stronger muscles, because sleeping well increases your attention span and allows you to be physically relaxed and mentally alert at the same time. Then you are at your personal best."
