The Golden Chain of Health – Focus!

Hello!! Welcome to the Day 7 of the Golden Chain of Health! Today, I am going to share the 6th benefit of 11 surprising benefits of sleep, Sharpen Attention.

Have you even shout to your kid like one of the following?
1. “FOCUS!!”
2. “PAY ATTENTION!!”
3. “WHAT ARE YOU WONDERING FOR??”

Eventually, your kids may be suffering in ADHD-like symptoms in kids which is a result of lack of sleep.

“Kids don’t react the same way to sleep deprivation as adults do,” Dr. Rapoport says, “Whereas adults get sleepy, kids tend to get hyperactive.”

In 2009, there is a study in the journal Pediatrics found that children ages seven and eight who got less than about eight hours of sleep a night were more likely to be hyperactive, inattentive, and impulsive.

“We diagnose and measure sleep by measuring electrical changes in the brain,” Dr. Rapoport says, “So not surprisingly how we sleep affects the brain.”

Does it the result that your kids are not listening to you? Have a think about it and hope this helps in your parenting.

Cheers 🙂
