Parent Webinar Event: Sleep for Better Health, Resilience & Performances with Lisa Maltman
Sleep plays a vital role to good health, thus should be taken seriously. Lack of sleep can lead to significant consequences. However, did you know, approximately 30% of primary school children and 70% of teenagers are in fact sleep deprived?
Some of the effects seen from sleep deprivation can lead to issues with emotional and mental health, behavior and decision making, learning and academic performances and physical problems.
For example, studies show students who are sleep deprived are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety, negative body image and low self-esteem. Similarly, sleep deprivation can affect a child’s decision-making capacity and can have a negative effect on behavior and relationships. This also comes into effect with a child’s concentration and motivation. Sleep deprivation can affect their consolidation and strengthening of information and memory. Studies also show the negative impact on a child’s physical growth and weight gain, as well as their immune system and brain development.
At the Parent Masterclass, Lisa Maltman will discuss how to combat child sleep deprivation. The workshop intent is to create awareness of the current level of sleep deprivation among students, while empowering parents with the knowledge and practical strategies to manage sleep health for the entire family. This Parent Masterclass is open the King's community and Senior School students.
