JumpyTheFrog Posted November 15, 2011 Share Posted November 15, 2011 I was talking with a neighbor last night. She mentioned her 6 year old's problem with dark circles under her eyes. She was wondering about allergies, but I asked if they go away when the girl gets more sleep. She said they get much better. The daughter sleeps from 9pm-7:30 am, or less. I don't think 10.5 hours is enough for most 6 year olds. My son, who is a year younger, sleeps about 11-12 hours. He needs 12 consistently or his behavior becomes terrible. It seems very unrealistic for a family to get their kids to bed every night by 7:30pm. It would make any evening activities impossible and eliminate much chance to see any parents that work during the day. In order for them to get enough sleep, she'd see them for about one hour in the morning and three hours after school before bed, during which they'd be doing homework, eating dinner, and taking a bath. No wonder she's thought about homeschooling, just so she could see her kids more. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
