A few weeks ago we asked our Youth forums if they had any tips for improving sleep hygiene


Here’s a little look at some of the responses we received…

Re: Special Discussion: Sleep Awareness Week

Hi all

My teens were responsible for getting themselves up for school each weekday.

I reminded them that if they wanted to stay past set bedtime it was on them.

I would regularly with great glee explain if they did not make it to school I would go to their classes to take notes - in my pyjamas

Saddly I never got to go
