A Good Night’s Rest
According to Rachel Dawkins, M.D., with the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital,
Studies have shown that kids who regularly get an adequate amount of sleep have improved attention, behavior, learning, memory, and overall mental and physical health. Not getting enough sleep can lead to high blood pressure, obesity and even depression. 1
