One third of parents with children between zero and five years sleeps one to two hours too short. A quarter of the same age group sleeps with the parents in the bedroom. But not only young children sleep in the bedside bed; Four percent of children up to 12 years old also seem to sleep with the parents in the marital spond.
This is the result of a survey by the Association for Sleep / Watch Surveys , for which first research in our country has been conducted for the first time on the relationship between sleep and parenting among almost 2000 parents. “Children seem to have a significant impact on parents’ night sleep,” says chairman and neurologist Hans Hamburger. The data is now announced because next week the National Sleep Week begins.
True sleep diseases were also noted: 23 children suffered from apnea or snoring; 14 children had insomnia or insomnia and 5 children had restless legs syndrome.
