Science Nation – Sleep Deprived Kids

– A psychologist explains why sleep is especially important for children, and outlines the consequences of sleep deprivation on development in children living in poverty. There are more pronounced effects on cognitive tests, showing that it adds to existing stressors.

The good news is that if low income kids simply get more sleep, it levels the playing field.

“They may not get sick as frequently, and in the home, they don’t show as much depression and anxiety,” reports Mona El-Sheikh.
