Parents Need to Regulate How Much Their Teens Sleep in the Summer
Many teenagers might be enjoying summer by staying up late at night and sleeping in the next morning. But parents shouldn't let that become a habit.
Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic say sleep patterns can be difficult to change for teens, especially when they have to shift from summertime to school. Doctors recommend keeping kids on somewhat of a regular sleep schedule. A positive way to handle the situation is to negotiate a bed-time and wake-up time so kids are aware they have chores or responsibilities during the day.
