All children need sleep and want sleep during the weekdays and that is very difficult. It has been noticed that older students and younger
Abstract Sleep deprivation and sleep disorders among college students is an area of concern among researchers, because of the relationship between quality sleep and quality of academic performance. The factors that have been shown to affect sleep quality or sleep patterns include staying up late, using social networking, and partying. This research uses a simple, unique survey instrument. A total of fifty college students participated in the study. Results substantiate the hypothesis that social media use is heavy among college students, and that the use of social media will be correlated with less sleep and less effective study habits. Future research may discover ways of helping students develop more balanced approaches to their academic, online, and social lives.
School should start later. Waking up at six in the morning to get ready for school really makes kids mad. They have to go through the rest of their day doing work when they feel tired and just want to go back to bed. But what if they didn’t have

3. Describe the study in your own words. a. Why was the study done? What was the purpose of the study? i. The purpose of this study was to examine relationship between sleep-related problems (SRPs) and anxiety disorders among children and adolescents. Previous research indicates a significant association between SRPs and anxiety disorders. However, there is limited research investigating SRPs in children and adolescents and their possible effect on functioning during the day. Therefore, this study attempts to address these discrepancies by means of an introductory inspection of various kinds of SRPs amid an abundant sample of children and adolescents with anxiety disorders. Specifically, it investigated the incidence of eight
ADHD has been connected with variety of sleep problems. More than 50 % of parents whose children has ADHD report that their children suffer from sleep problem (“ADHD,” 2016). ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to WebMD it’s a condition with symptoms such as inattentiveness, impulsivity and hyperactivity. The sleep problem range from falling asleep to staying asleep. More precisely Children with ADHD have trouble staying still in on place, staying focused and controlling their behavior and emotions. This can very much lead to poor social skills, isolation and poor academic performance.
Starting early in the morning causes students to be cognitively affected. According to the U.S news weekly, The United States is number one on the list where learning is suffering due to lack of sleep. The National Institute of Health recommends at least 7-9 hours for adults but healthy kids get even more. Lack of sleep can cause depression and anxiety but can lead to neurodevelopmental disorders. This includes OCD or ADHD and in extreme cases, autism due to lack of brain development in younger kids. A test conducted by the ACAMH (The Association of Child and Adolescent Mental Health) showed that females are greatly affected by lack of sleep. Malnutrition is also present in lack of sleep. The body regenerates itself as it sleeps and longer hours of sleep allow it to recuperate better. The first step to help kids get their sleep back is to consider
Wide awake: Why do children with autism struggle with sleep? Sleep-related difficulties are one of the major concerns among parents with autistic children. About 43-84% of parents have reported that their children face problems with either sleep initiation, maintenance or early awakenings in a study in 1990s1,2. This distressing condition affects not only the child but also the well-being of the entire family. Sleep is essential for
Sleep disorders alter ones sleep pattern and often results in the inability to either sleep or sleep soundly. They often cause you to feel restless, tired, fatigued, and irritable. It is estimated that nearly 75 percent of adult Americans experience sleep disorder symptoms at least a few nights per week. At the same time, sleep disturbances in some form are seen in as many as 25 to 30 percent of infants and children (“Sleep Disorders” 2013). Clearly a huge conundrum in the world, sleep disorders affect an inordinate amount of people. Millions of people suffer or have suffered from a sleep disorder at one point in their lives and if mistreated can impact organ systems functioning negatively. Physical disturbances, medical issues,
Dysfunctional Beliefs About Child Sleep Scale, (DBACS). Parents dysfunctional beliefs about children's sleep were analyzed using a an instrument adapted from a DBAS scale for adults. The original had 28 items that were modified to tap into parents dysfunctional beliefs about their child's’ sleep. Two changes were made from the original version, items pertaining to growing older were excluded as they are not relevant to children; word substitutions, the second change, were made to the remaining 22 items. The Child Sleep Habits Questionnaire, (CSHQ), was used to measure the reports made by parents on children with SRP’s. Mothers and fathers were asked to observe their child's sleep behaviors for a week. The CSHQ consists of 45 items forming 8 subscales determine fundamental sleep domains: bedtime resistance, sleep-onset delay, sleep disordered breathing and daytime sleepiness. Parents were asked to rate items on a 3 point scale, and indicate whether they felt there was a problem for their child. Another way to measure an SRP is the Self Sleep Report (SSR), used to measure self reported SRP’s by the children. Sleep diaries and the use of Actigraphs, are used to measure sleep objectively, Actigraphs are motion loggers and it records when the wearer is active or inactive, the periods of inactivity are later logged as rest or sleep. Using Actiwatch-64 and Actiware-CT 5.2, this device and software have shown good concordance against polysomnography in children. The sleep variables measured were: Sleep Onset Latency, Total Sleep Time, and sleep efficiency percent. participants recorded the information a sleep diary; the time they went to bed, lights out, time spent asleep and the time they got out of bed.
Because of this relationship, checking for possible sleep problems should be part of the evaluation for everyone with academic and behavioral problems. If a sleep problem is suspected, the clinician who evaluated should take a complete history of it. The history should include questions about the usual time they go to bed, the time required to fall asleep, how many times they wake up at night, if snoring is evident, if they have difficulty waking up, and if the patient naps or has daytime sleepiness. Asking the patient to keep a sleep diary that records daily sleep behaviors for several weeks would also be
