learning1 An Extra 30 Minutes Sleep Will Improve Your Childs Motivation to LearnEnsuring your child has an extra 30 minutes in bed can effectively improve their motivation to learn, concentration levels, mood and health and also their performance at school, according to a new US study.

The US study also found that a lie-in led to a reduction in children’s fatigue and stress levels. Researchers from the Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, tracked 200 students aged 14 to 18 as their school starting time was delayed by 30 minutes – from 8am to 8.30am.

They were also asked to complete an on-line “sleep habits” survey before and after the change. According to the study, published in the journal Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, the delayed start time resulted in “significantly more satisfaction with sleep and experienced improved motivation”.

It added: “Daytime sleepiness, fatigue and depressed mood were all reduced. Most health-related variables, including health centre visits for fatigue-related complaints, and class attendance also improved”.

On average, children stayed in bed for an additional 45 minutes, even though classes were only delayed by 30 minutes.

According to the study, the proportion of teenagers getting less than seven hours of sleep fell by almost 80 per cent, while those reporting at least eight hours of sleep soared more than three-fold.

It also led to a reduction in the amount of over-sleeping at the weekend.
