"NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Letting kids sleep a little longer may help improve their behavior and make them less restless in school, according to a new study. I love the way that they simply say to "add sleep" for their children and "letting" them sleep longer may improve their behavior. I have a boy between seven and eleven, the ages of the study. In fact, I have two. No matter WHAT I do, they sleep exactly as long as THEY want to. My younger one especially. If I put him to bed earlier, he gets up earlier. Even if I do not wake him on school mornings, he frequently simply gets up, gets out of bed, and gets dressed. Sometimes before MY alarm. Saturday and Sunday mornings, doubly so. We have purchased blackout curtains for his room. I close his door to eliminate extraneous noises from waking him. But bing! Off goes his internal alarm clock and up he gets. I've noticed that my eleven year old is now sleeping more, but he's also definitely moving towards/into puberty and is having a lot of physical changes take place, so I'm not surprised. But the whole idea that I'm the one controlling how much my kid sleeps amuses me. GSF
