  • Teens Not Getting Enough Sleep? Practical Advice for Parents
    degrees White noise lavender essential oil spray on the pillows chamomile tea these can also help Do you have any tips for how to let go of the stress from the day I d suggest these stress release exercises which can really help Breathe in to the count of four hold your breath and tense all your muscles and then when you cannot hold your breath any more breathe out to the count of six This helps release the tension while also reminding your body what it s like to feel relaxed What about those counting sheep tricks The idea behind those is to be mindful and to interrupt the train of thought that might be keeping you awake Often we are hijacked by our thoughts and that can interfere with sleep I can t fall asleep and I m tired and if I m tired I m not going to do well and if I don t do well I m not going to go to college my parents are going to be unhappy I m never going to meet Mrs Right and before you know it it s one o clock in the morning and you re not asleep So how can you reset if this happens Use your senses So it s one o clock and I m awake I see the ceiling I see the curtains I hear a car in the street I feel the comforter on my body and the pillows supporting my back Really try to anchor yourself into the present not the thoughts about tomorrow or last week That s practicing mindfulness at night The ideal scenario when the teenager is in charge of their sleep decisions What about giving teenagers melatonin I think you are going to have a hard time finding a pediatrician who feels comfortable recommending melatonin because there has been little research on its impact on teenagers Melatonin is a hormone that our brains produce at the end of the day when it gets darker So if it s not dark the hormone is not going to be produced Instead of offering artificial melatonin make sure that the bedroom is dark and that all devices are turned off Some people actually wear sunglasses in the evening Why do so many teens struggle with falling asleep Part of the reason they don t sleep well is because they are driven Sometimes it s parents putting on the pressure but a lot of the time it s self imposed There s pressure with tests athletics relationships family college and the future in general There is so much reason for them to be anxious How much sleep for teens should parents enforce during the weekend Ideally we want to have the teens take responsibility for their sleep habits But let s say we need to intervene Explain to your teenager the consequences of poor sleep habits so they can make good decisions Make sure they don t go to bed hungry

    you get there Start by making the ten hours of sleep needed by tweens non negotiable When your fifth grader asks if he can try out for the science Olympiad stay on the hockey team and join a youth group consider saying Here s the deal Until you re thirteen I get 10 1 2 hours of your day Ten of those hours are for sleep and the half hour is for dinner and chores That leaves you with 13 1 2 hours You can take on new activities if you can finish your homework and get to bed on time If you can t we ll reconsider your extracurriculars Feel free to add When you re 13 you get one more waking hour but I still get nine hours for sleep Sleep is a powerful glue that holds each and every one of us together and well rested teens and tweens think smarter learn faster and remember more than their drowsy classmates The tween years are also prime time for establishing good sleep hygiene habits Psychologists use this off putting term to refer to the routines that support sleep For example we know that it s best to go to bed and wake up at consistent hours in a bedroom that is cool dark and quiet And what s the number one threat to good sleep hygiene for teenagers You guessed it digital devices The light they emit suppresses key sleep hormones and when used in the bedroom technology disrupts the critical connection our bodies make between being in bed and falling asleep When your sixth grader lobbies for a phone of her own use her burning need to text with her friends to lay down rules that will support her sleep all technology stays out of her bed better yet her bedroom shuts down an hour before bedtime and charges where it won t bother her at night If she balks at these rules let her know that you re holding yourself to the same standards they are as necessary for adults as they are for tweens and teens Work to get good habits in place while you still have a tween because the sleep deck is stacked against teenagers A biological phenomenon known as sleep phase delay causes adolescents to want to stay up longer and sleep in later And in a diabolical twist the school start times in most communities run against kids natural sleep patterns Most kindergarteners get sleepy early and are up hours before the school day begins while most teenagers can burn the midnight oil but have to drag themselves out of bed to make it to school on time If your teen didn t get good sleep habits in place before adolescence and is suffering now it s not too late to help her make changes Teenagers especially tired ones can be open to guidance on how to adjust their habits to improve sleep Don t take a judgmental tone when offering

  • Teens Sleep In - Summer for Parents
    So during the summer it makes perfect sense for teenagers to stay up later sleep in more and have a schedule that is more suited to them biologically But that doesn t mean all bets are off Yes loosen the schedule and allow everything to go later but not crazy later advises Carr Not two a m in the morning Here are Carr s tips for summer sleep and teenagers Adjust the time your teenager heads to bed but not by more than 90 minutes to two hours You re saying I recognize it s summer and you can take it easy and stay up a little later and get up a little later says Carr But if your teenager gets used to sleeping a lot later and getting up a lot later he or she will be so miserable in the fall Also if your teenager has to be up early then take that into account when deciding when it s lights out Remember that the light emitted by electronic devices inhibits the secretion of melatonin which is the chemical that regulates our sleep wake cycle This interferes with our ability to get to sleep so it s important for everyone to stop using electronics 30 to 45 minutes before retiring and to keep electronics out of the bedroom Have a household rule about parents and teenagers powering down at a certain time recommends Carr If it s nine during the school year then make it 10 or 10 30 during the summer Plan now for the last two to three weeks of summer to include activities that get teenagers up and out in the morning This will help ease the transition back to more of a school like schedule says Carr Try scheduling something at the end of

    someone to have problems sleeping You do not want your brain to associate your bed with work or studying Dr Carr says or surfing the internet texting or any other activities that stimulate rather than calm your brain at night Instead prepare a pleasant comfortable separate space that is conducive to studying so your teenager associates a bed with sleep and only sleep 2 No electronic devices in bed According to Dr Carr the single biggest factor preventing teenagers from getting the sleep they need is taking their smart phone or laptop into bed with them at bedtime Studies have shown that the blue screen lightwaves may inhibit the secretion of melatonin the hormone that triggers sleep and disrupt circadian rhythms the body s biological clock throwing sleep cycles out of whack for a teenager Establish a family policy that YOU also follow advises Dr Carr and power down by at least 10 p m at night Have a family charging station in a common area NOT the bedroom where you and your teen as a family put your phones away for the night 3 Establish a bedtime ritual You can t control when you fall asleep but you can create an optimal environment for sleep to take place Turn all computers smart phones and devices off at least 30 minutes prior to going to bed Take a warm shower For girls Dr Carr recommends something as simple as a lotion with a particular scent that she only uses at bedtime as a cue to the brain that it is time for sleep For boys perhaps changing into clothes that he only wears at bedtime 4 Streamline your teen s morning Make whatever reasonable accommodations you can in the morning to enable your teenager to sleep in as long as possible Encourage him or her to be packed up laid out and ready to go the night before 5 Model good sleep behavior yourself Your teenager will notice if you routinely sacrifice sleep due to the demands of work or family or even just to watch late night TV They may see that you keep your smart phone on your bed stand so you can check your email one last time Dr Carr warns that teens may conclude that sacrificing sleep is what I have to do to in order to succeed Model the behavior you want your teen to follow You ll get a better night s sleep too Read more on this topic Wake up Honey It s Daylight Savings Go to Bed Handling Changes in Your Tween s Sleep Pattern I Hate When My Teen is Still Sleeping at Noon Teens and Sleep Should You Wake a Sleeping Teen About the Author Diana Simeon is managing editor for Your Teen Magazine Social Share 4 Comments Simply Greater November 22 2013 at 12 24 pm Reply I think modeling behavior for your child to follow is the most important thing to do as a parent Children are smarter

  • Teens and Sleep: Should You Wake a Sleeping Teenager?
    need structure explains Duffy a Chicago based psychologist and author of The Available Parent Radical Optimism for Raising Teens and Tweens Sleeping the day away can drive some poor habits So difficult as it is I strongly encourage parents to wake teenagers up on the weekends Of course it doesn t need to be as early as it would be during the school week It s the structure that is critical Structure helps teenagers develop self regulation such as not staying up all night and sleeping in all day an important skill that they will need to be successful in college and beyond So how should you start if you like many of us have a teenager who doesn t rise until well after noon Tell your teenager you ll be waking her up on weekends with the goal that she ll be doing it on her own within a reasonable time frame The sooner your teenager is responsible for waking herself up both during the week and on the weekends the better both now and in the long run explains Duffy It s critical to remember that fostering competence and resilience are among the most important goals of parenting The more we helicopter and do for our teenagers the more we are taking away that potential from them even in matters that feel as trivial as the alarm clock Duffy recommends introducing the idea over dinner or in the car not when your teenager wanders downstairs at 1 00 p m on a Saturday That s what Cleveland area mom Jill Davidson did with her own son who is 12 and routinely slept until noon on weekends Monday mornings had become awful as Davidson s son could not get to sleep at a reasonable hour on Sunday night So
