A Teen's Internal Clock

Too little sleep

 

A- most teens need 9 hours of sleep (sometimes more)

-90 percent of teens get less then the recomended nine hours

-10 percent get less then six hours a night.

 

There are many consequences, tired teens have difficult time concetrating and learning or even staying awake in class,

 

little sleep migth contribute to mood swings and behavioral probkems, drowsy driving which can lead to serious even deadly accidents.
