If Moms Sleep Well, So do Kids

Parent Interventions

That sleep is essential to a child’s wellbeing and mental health goes without saying.

 

But kids, whose mothers suffer from insomnia, tend to sleep less or have disturbed sleep patterns. This affects their memory, learning and performance at school. The study led by Dr. Sakari Lemola from the University of Basel, Switzerland and published in the journal Sleep Medicine, says children whose mothers suffer from insomnia-related symptoms fall asleep late, get less sleep and spend less time in deep sleep.

 


The most common sleep disorder in adulthood is insomnia characterized by difficulty in falling asleep or getting sufficient sleep. It is also possible that kids may also share genes with parents which predispose them to either poor or good sleep. Other factors could also affect the sleep patterns of kids. A family fight just before bed time can be unsettling for kids who tend to have disturbed sleep.
