Parenting and Behavioural Issues
: Sleep In Children-Getting Enough


Getting enough sleep is very important, from birth to adolescence. Young children less than 3 to 4 years of age require daytime naps. A child that does not get enough sleep can be very fussy, irritable, agressive and of course may not be able to learn or play well with other children. This table lists the typical sleep requirements of children based on age. Because each child is unique, this table should only serve as a general guide.
