Children aged 5-9 years without a good night sleep can show symptoms of:

 

  • Inattention
  • Difficulty with peer interaction
  • Difficulty with focus
  • More emotional instability
  • Difficulty with academic performance

 

Wath for Top Tips from Dr. Maida Chen, medschoolforparents.com Expert:
 
 
In order to understand these symptoms look at their quality of sleep, quantity of sleep and when they go to sleep and wake up.
 
If you are unable to figure out what is causing restless sleep, consider referral to a sleep specialist. Particularly if your child snores, has periodic limb movement or sleep apnea.
