Sleep Changes in Pre-teen

Postby Annikki on Mon Nov 10, 2014 12:06 pm

I am sure this is normal but would love some feedback.

Our almost 11 year old is now sleeping in late in the mornings on weekends and is sluggish on school morning. He use to be up early every morning. No changes in bedtimes. Says he has a great sleep.

Welcome to puberty!

Seriously: his body is going through enormous changes and growth, and he needs more sleep. I swear my oldest sleeps more as a teen than he did as a baby....
