A new study claims that kids with ADHD (attention deficit disorder) may find it difficult to fall asleep. Also, such kids might not be able to enjoy quality sleep as they tend to remain distracted.
This gradually may turn into insomnia or sleep deprivation. Kids who suffer ADHD are generally hyperactive, inattentive and also impulsive. Some kids my suffer this condition till adulthood.
Such kids may find it very difficult to even sit still. They fail to focus on anything for a long duration. This affects their social skills and also their academics.
As this new study also claims that this disorder affects the quality of sleep in kids, parents may need to pay more attention. In fact, when kids lose sleep in the night, they tend to fall asleep during the day.
A new study is trying to find out whether treating the sleep issues can minimise the hyperactive issue in such children.
Generally, hyperactivity and restlessness could also be a side-effect of sleep deprivation. When kids lose sleep, they tend to be more aggressive, restless and emotional on the next day. So, it might help if you can make your kid sleep better and on time.
