Often when talking to a parent about their child’s behavioral issues I will ask them what time they put their kids to bed.

Getting a good night’s rest is important for your child to have a good day at school.  I know that I cannot function throughout the day without becoming crabby if I haven’t had 8 to 10 hours of sleep.  The same thing happens to young children.  They need 10 to 12 hours of sleep – at least.  The article below lists the recommended hours that each age group of children should have.

We want your children to have the best day possible at school, ensuring a better day all around.

Sometime shutting in your household down by 7 or 8 o’clock seems an impossible task, but an early bedtime routine is necessary in order for your child to be the best possible student throughout his or her educational years.
