What to Expect
Research shows that the average teenager needs approximately 9 hours of sleep a night, not much less than school-aged children. However, the average teenager gets about 7 hours on school nights and tries to catch up on weekends and holidays.
Common sleep challenges at this age include use of electronics in place of sleep, poor sleep habits, bedtime insomnia, middle of the night insomnia, as well as anxious and/or depressive feelings. Consult with a registered professional if additional support is needed.
