Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System (HRHS) wants you to have a game plan this school year. Here are 5 tips to help you and your child be prepared for the start of school.
Form a routine sleep schedule
The days of sleeping in are over. Sleep routines are important for people of all ages to feel well rested throughout their day. Early waking’s may be rough at first, but your child’s natural body clock will align with the new sleep schedule. It is recommended that children aged 6-13 get 9-11 hours of sleep and children 14-17 get 8-10 hours of sleep.
