A child absolutely needs enough sleep. The following guidelines relate to the average number of hours of sleep a child, pupil or puber needs. So not the amount of hours they have to lay in bed. Especially pubs tend to watch TV in the bed, chat with friends, play computer games on the ipad etc. This often means they do not allow enough sleep.

Pubbers are often told to be lazy. They can not get out of bed in the morning and can not get in the evening. In pubs, the sleeper shifts backwards in time. This happens in a relatively short period of time. The block goes back in a row. That’s the time when home wrestles arise about going to bed. Your daughter or son does not sleep anymore and it’s complicated because she has to get up at 7:00 to be in school at school. But pubs need more sleep than adults (average 9 hours). Due to the physical changes in puberty, like the growth spurt, the body also needs additional rest. Insufficient sleep has an adverse effect on school performance and increases the risk of depression and behavioral problems.
Bedtime for pubs:
- 12 to 15 years: between 21:00 and 21:30
- 15 to 17 years old: between 21:30 and 22:00
- 17 to 18 years old: between 22:00 and 23:00
