I recently read an article addressing balance for busy kids and families. When kids are not balanced, we often see behavior problems and lower grades at school.
One of the most important suggestions that they made was regarding sleep! The article mentioned that the 2003 National Survey for Children's Health found that 15 million kids get inadequate sleep. Even a single-hour deficit leaves sixth-graders performing like fourth-graders on cognitive tests!
Please make sure that your children are going to bed on time. This one area can make a huge impact on your child's learning!
