Always lie at the same time, speak little and not stir overnight, do not have nightmares, sleep sufficient number of hours for each age, waking up alone, recovered and well prepared for a day of more activities. Is that all children achieve this? According to the pediatrician and homeopath Yechiel Moises Chencinski, whenever there is a change in this dynamic, the result may not be satisfactory.
Start a day after a sleepless night in the clear or even usually brings problems: - Not only for the child but for all of us, a productive day could only start after a good night's sleep. Our batteries much required during the activity, are recharged overnight and, therefore, it is essential that this period is experienced with a decrease in metabolic activity. So we can charge our batteries not spend them at the same time.
To Chencinski, competitiveness, charges, obligations, many extracurricular activities, troubled family environment or even own childhood diseases - like fevers and colds, for example - are factors that can interfere with the sleep of children. - In those slightly larger, emotional disorders, including anxiety and depression, which are more common than you think, can also interfere with sleep and quality of sleep - stresses. There is no way to measure the size of the losses.
The problems range from drop of attention and school performance, changes in food, humor, or even damage to development - not because the GH (growth hormone) is greater release in sleep phase. - If the child has trouble at night, this release may be impaired - explains the expert. He points out that disturbances may appear in childhood and remain in adulthood. Insomnia disorder, attention, mood changes and other changes such as obesity, for example, may originate in childhood.
How to treat - The ideal is not to treat children with problems, but to create conditions so that these children can have a rhythm and a routine age-appropriate - Chencinski comments. - The routines should be established such changes should make sense to the body. After all, people pay a high price when you dare to spend 24 hours a day course. It has been proven that without the daily quota of sleep, the ability to pay attention decreases dramatically.
Instead, it is more aggressive, and sensitive. And, after more than two days without sleep, the body surrenders to pain, as if he had been beaten. 2400 years ago, Aristotle described sleep as a necessity of the body. The Greek philosopher only wrong to assign it to heart. Today we know that sleep is brain activity. The word "activity", incidentally, comes in handy, because the rigor cérebronunca rests - not asleep, as the German scientist Hans Berger proved for the first time in the 20s.
