The Kids Are Alright - At Night

by Tracy Jensen

A recent report suggests that most children actually are getting the CDC’s recommended amount of rest for their age. For example, the researchers estimate that the majority of U.S. kids surveyed between 5- to 10-years-old are sleeping 10-11 hours a night.
