back to bed 4 back to school!

more and more research is showing that kids need more sleep and that there is a direct correlation between the amount of sleep that they receive and how they perform at school!  not getting enough sleep affects cognitive ability & emotional and physical well being. 

some studies indicate that missing an hour of sleep, for elementary school kids, causes a drop in performance equivalent to one grade level.  missing sleep means that kids don't have the ability to absorb and process what they've learned neurologically.
with little ones going back to school (even preschool), it's important to give them every advantage to make their school experience a great one.
