Overcoming Children Sleep A Lot?
at morning.rnI have a younger sister who is in grade 5 elementary school, since grade 5 my sister has been in the afternoon. In the morning after the morning prayer he sleeps again, if he wakes up to do something he is always lazy, if he has done his work he will sleep again and until he is about to go to school he wakes up and his appetite is getting bigger. Since grade 5, his body has gotten fatter . Is that one of the effects of continuous sleep and non-stop eating? What are the impacts on health? How to deal with it?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Sleep time varies depending on age and individual variations. In general, the time required is:
· Age 0-3 months 12-18 hours per day
· Age 4-11 months 12-15 hours per day
· 1-2 years 11-14 hours per day
· 3-5 years 10-13 hours per day
· 6-13 years 9-11 hours per day
· 14-17 years 8-10 hours per day
· 18-25 years 7-9 hours per day
· 26 - 64 years 7-9 hours per day
· > 65 years 7-8 hours per day
However, basically the most important thing about sleep is not the duration, but the quality of sleep. What I said above is only based on age alone.
The increase in appetite is actually not affected by the length of sleep. On the contrary, appetite will increase more during sleep deprivation. This condition may be due to your younger sibling not having breakfast, so when he wakes up during the day, he must feel hungry. Adjust the portion of the meal with the need to eat based on a balanced diet, because it is still in its infancy so the body needs lots of nutrients.
