Children can suffer from sleep disorders that disrupt their ability to get a good night’s sleep. Because healthy sleep is essential to mental and physical development, recognizing signs of a sleep disorder in your child is important to his health.
This video discusses common childhood sleep disorders. Insomnia, or difficulty falling and staying asleep, is often due to poor sleep hygiene. It can also be due to anxiety or depression, particularly in teenagers. Children can also suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, a common sleep disorder that causes interruptions in breathing during sleep.
