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. We are usually right in there, but we did miss a couple hours staying up for the Big Game this week!

How old is your child, and how much sleep do they typically get? For us — 10 and 10!
