A huge debate the last 10 years has been what can parents do to help their kids get enough sleep to help their brain develop fully during their teen years. There are multiple ways, but because there are so many electronics and devices that keep kids up at night it is hard nowadays. A very important way that can help kids get more sleep is by taking away electronics after a certain time at night, because so many waste an average of at least a couple hours a day, because they are distracted on their cellular devices. If teachers also do more work in class, so that they will not give out as much homework. Homework is another reason that students do not get enough sleep that they need for their brain to function. Not only that, but if that were to happen, statistics show that when you get more sleep you will have better moods, which will lead to more friends and a happier life.
Overall sleep is an essential. Statistics show that regardless of how much a student studies each day, if they do not get the proper amount of sleep that they need, the student will have much more trouble understanding the assignment the next day than if the student were to go to bed and get a healthy amount of sleep. This is a perfect example of how teachers should not assign as much homework to help students develop their brains to understand the material better after being well rested. Not only that, but not enough sleep can cause children to become obese, develop type 2 diabeters, get in car accidents, along with depressoin, anxiety, and irritablity.
In the long run if students are able to develop good sleep habits it will lead to a long lasting healthier life than those who do not get the proper amount of sleep. This is why good sleep habits need to start young, because when you do something when you are little it becomes a habit, therefore if you go to bed early and do not use your phone you are most likely to do that your whole life. Whereas if you have gone your whole childhood staying up late, stressing over school, and doing homework in the future you are more likely to have much more stress and problems that could easily be avoided with more sleep. Therefore if students are able to learn good sleeping habits and able to do a healthy amount of homework as a child then when they are older they are very likely to be more successful and happier.
