f your child wakes up before the alarm clock (even if you wish they didn’t), it’s a good sign he or she is getting adequate sleep. But if you set three alarms and still have to drag your child out of bed in the morning, it’s time to work on creating some better sleep habits, as he or she may not be getting enough sleep.
The start of school is a critical time to get kids adjusted to a consistent sleep schedule. Most children become used to staying up a little later and sleeping in more frequently during the summer, but as the school year gets under way, it’s important to move bedtime up and get back into a routine.
Inadequate sleep is a frequent problem that worsens as school starts, and it’s a problem that leads to tired kids and tired parents — a very unhealthy combination.
How much sleep does a kid need?
School-aged children (5 to 12 years old) need 9 to 12 hours of sleep each night, says pediatric sleep specialist Vaishal Shah, MD. But many children get only 7 to 8 hours per night — sometimes even less.
Studies have linked sleep deprivation with mood swings and reduced cognitive function, including concentration difficulties, lower test scores and a drop in overall school performance. Poor sleep also is associated with poor eating habits and obesity.
As a result, they aren’t even aware their children are not getting enough shut-eye.
To determine if your child gets enough sleep, ask yourself these questions:
Does my child need to be awakened three to four times before actually getting out of bed?
Does my child complain of being tired throughout the day?
Does my child take an afternoon nap?
Does my child need catch-up sleep on the weekends?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then, simply put, your child is not getting enough sleep. Not only can your child’s behavior and mood improve with more sleep, but getting more snooze time can help with performance at school as well.
8 easy tips for healthier sleep habits
Aim for a bedtime that allows your child to get at least 10 to 11 hours of sleep. If your child is not going to bed early enough, make bedtime earlier by 15 to 20 minutes every few days.
Set a regular sleep schedule. Your child’s bedtime and wake-up time shouldn’t vary by more than 30 to 45 minutes between weeknights and weekends.
Start scheduling a regular wake-up time one week before school starts.
Create a consistent bedtime routine (yes, even for older children) that is calming and sets the mind for sleep.
Turn off electronic screens at least 60 minutes before bedtime.
Avoid caffeine and sugary drinks, particularly in the second half of the day.
Help your child get ready for sleep by making sure he or she is getting enough physical activity throughout the day. Aim for at least one full hour of physical activity. “Outdoor play, particularly in the morning, is helpful because exposure to natural light helps keep your child’s circadian rhythm in sync,” Dr. Shah says.
As with many habits, it’s essential to set a good example by making sleep a priority for yourself.
Survive the mornings
Even with a good night’s slumber, parents can agree that mornings during the school year can be pretty chaotic. Still, a little pre-planning can help make the early mornings go more smoothly.
A couple days before school starts, run through the morning routine with your children to make sure there’s enough time to get dressed, eat breakfast and get out the door. It’s also extremely helpful the night before to check a few items off your morning to-do list, such as packing lunches, setting out school clothes and making sure backpacks are stocked and ready to go.
When it comes to figuring out a healthy sleep schedule for kids, it’s necessary to note that a significant proportion of children will have difficulty with sleep at some point during their childhood. To an extent, this is developmentally normal, Dr. Shah says. However, there is a subset of children who have sleep disorders and should seek medical care.
When to see the pediatrician
Here are some reasons to take your child to the doctor to discuss sleep concerns:
Your child seems to have excessive fears or anxiety around going to sleep.
Snoring that is loud or disruptive.
Frequent unexplained nighttime awakenings.
Nighttime bedwetting that persists past the age of 7.
Excessive daytime sleepiness, in spite of adequate hours of sleep.
Restful sleep can be a first line of defense for combating illness, repairing cells, and providing rejuvenation of mind and body. However, when stressed, the body operates in a fight or flight mode. We often think of stress as things like work, relationships, or busy schedules, but it can also be a lack of nutrients for the body to function normally. Many people struggle with going to sleep, staying asleep, or have quality sleep because they don’t have the building blocks their bodies need. We have chosen quality all-natural ingredients available to provide the nutrient-ready environment for your body to achieve great sleep!

With the fast, worldwide reach of the media, it seems like every year we hear about a new illness outbreak looming on the horizon. In 2001 it was anthrax, 2002 was West Nile virus, 2003 was SARS, and in the following years it’s been H1N1 influenza, Ebola, and Zika viruses, among others. And now in 2020, we have a new coronavirus emerging.
The World Health Organization has now declared the coronavirus outbreak centered in Wuhan, China a “public health emergency of international concern,” with cases diagnosed as far as Europe, Thailand, Japan, and the US. This currently rivals the SARS coronavirus outbreak as far as total numbers, but the relative good news is that the fatality rate is much lower at 2 percent right now. Unfortunately, the media coverage and medical system response is enough to create panic for anyone.
Fortunately, all viruses share the same fundamental weaknesses, and there’s so much we can do to safely, easily, and naturally exploit these weaknesses to boost our immune system and protect ourselves from getting sick. For instance, did you know the magnesium chloride that is commonly used even in hospital ICU departments to save lives can also help fight off a virus? It’s true, and magnesium chloride is readily available for home use as well, so you don’t have to get sick to have access to it. And you can easily make it into a gel to apply to your children’s skin, so you don’t have to worry about getting them to take a pill.
With a basic understanding of how common viruses spread, some simple common sense precautions, and nutrients to boost your immune system, you can help protect your family from this public health menace.
The first thing you need to know about fighting off viruses is that the earlier you start, the better your interventions work. Don’t wait until you have a fever and cough, start at the first sign of a sniffle or that feeling that you might be coming down with something. Pay attention to local media and area schools with what they announce is going around, and boost your immune system ahead of time so you never have to miss a day of work.
When you have to go out in public during a viral illness outbreak (like flu season) to run errands or attend events, make sure you understand how the virus is spread and take appropriate measures. Most viral illnesses that cause outbreaks are airborne. This means they spread through tiny droplets that come from coughs and sneezes, and can travel all the way across a crowded room through the air, landing on solid surfaces or being breathed in.
Door knobs, shopping carts, keypads at the checkout, chair arms, and even the items you touch while shopping can all have contaminated droplets on them. While you are out, take special care to not touch your face and wash your hands regularly, or at least once you leave the store. If you are immune-compromised, wear a mask.
School children should wash hands regularly throughout the day, and athletes who play sports like basketball need to be aware the germs can travel on the ball and they need to use a towel (not their hands) to wipe sweat from their faces, and wash their hands after playing.
The complete clinical picture with regard to COVID-19 is not fully known. Reported illnesses have ranged from very mild (including some with no reported symptoms) to severe, including illness resulting in death. While information so far suggests that most COVID-19 illness is mild, a report out of China suggests serious illness occurs in 16% of cases. Older people and people of all ages with severe underlying health conditions — like heart disease, lung disease and diabetes, for example — seem to be at higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness .
It is important to note that current circumstances suggest it is likely that this virus will cause a pandemic. This is a rapidly evolving situation and CDC’s risk assessment will be updated as needed.
Current risk assessment:
For most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low. This virus is not currently widespread in the United States.
People in places where ongoing community spread of the virus that causes COVID-19 has been reported are at elevated risk of exposure, with increase in risk dependent on the location.
Healthcare workers caring for patients with COVID-19 are at elevated risk of exposure.
Close contacts of persons with COVID-19 also are at elevated risk of exposure.
Travelers returning from affected international locations where community spread is occurring also are at elevated risk of exposure, with increase in risk dependent on the location.
Symptoms of common human coronaviruses:
general feeling of being unwell
Human coronaviruses can sometimes cause lower-respiratory tract illnesses, such as pneumonia or bronchitis. This is more common in people with cardiopulmonary disease, people with weakened immune systems, infants, and older adults.
Preventing viral respiratory infections
Protect yourself from getting sick
wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
avoid close contact with people who are sick
Protect others when you are sick
stay home while you are sick
avoid close contact with others
cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing
clean and disinfect objects and surfaces
Treatment for common human coronaviruses
There is no vaccine to protect you against human coronaviruses and there are no specific treatments for illnesses caused by human coronaviruses. Most people with common human coronavirus illness will recover on their own. However, to relieve your symptoms you can:
take pain and fever medications (Caution: do not give aspirin to children)
use a room humidifier or take a hot shower to help ease
a sore throat and cough
drink plenty of liquids
stay home and rest
If you are concerned about your symptoms, contact your healthcare provider.
