You are not alone. Many parents notice that their children may not be sleeping enough and see changes in their children's daytime behavior when children don't get enough sleep. The Miriam Hospital is conducting a research program for children 8 to 11 years old to learn more about how changes in sleep affect children's daytime behaviors.
Children will be asked to increase and decrease the amount that they sleep for 1 week each. Parents and children will be asked to come in for 3 visits over 3 weeks to assess sleep, measure hormone levels, and assess daytime behaviors. All families will learn how to improve their child's sleep and will also be compensated for their time.
