Ensure enough shut-eye!  How much sleep is enough?  While there is no magic number, the National Sleep Foundation recommends preschoolers (3-5 years) get 11 to 13 hours, school-age children (6-10) get 10 to 11 hours and teenagers (10 to 17) get 8.5 to 9.25 hours.  The brain needs rest to be at its best, but many kids are falling short.  According to a recent study in China, children with daytime sleepiness and short sleep duration at night had impaired academic achievement.  Make sure you establish a regular routine and bedtime hour, so kids know what to expect.
