Adults need about 7-8 hours of sleep a night. From the age of 5 to 12 the amount of sleep that is needed, would probably be 10 to 11 hours. Babies also sleep a lot, to grow they also need 14-15 hours of sleep. Some kids might need more then most need less, it depends on the kid.
Sleep is actually healthy for your body. It is actually more important than you think. Sleep isn’t just for your body, its also for your brain too. A average kid has a busy day. Running around with friends, attending sports practices, taking care of your pets and doing your homework. At the end of the day the child needs a huge amount of rest.
