Do kids need more sleep than adults?



  1. 0 Votes

    Kids need more sleep because they need more time for their brains to develop.  School aged kids should get around 10-11 hours of sleep per night.  As the age gets younger the recommended hours get higher.  Adolescents are recommended to get 8.5-9.5 hours of sleep while adults are recommended to get 7-9 hours of sleep per day.

    Yes; infants and babies sleep around 16-20 hours a day, while young children sleep around 10-12 a day. As children grow older into adult hood they require less sleep however sleep is always important. Lack of sleep can lead to premature aging, heart disease, and mood disorders such as anxiety or depression.
