Summary

Many children in the United States don’t get enough sleep. Not getting enough sleep is linked to heart problems, obesity, and diabetes — and it can affect concentration, learning, mood, and behavior. Strategies to make it easier for children to get enough sleep include later school start times, parent education, and behavioral interventions.
