Although I am pretty confident that most nights and certainly across a week my children get enough sleep but I was interested to check how much sleep they “should” be getting. My best friend Google tells me my 8 year old and my 6 year old should be getting 10-11 hours a night.
Research from the Sleep Council suggests that children in the UK are not getting enough sleep, contributing to the rise of illnesses like obesity and a reduction in cognitive ability and learning. Making sure children have enough sleep is a top priority for any parent but often environmental factors can be difficult to control and are compounding the quality of children’s sleep.
Duette® Blinds are an innovative window blind, which has a clever honeycomb design and special fabric coating, can help parents across the country to reduce noise levels, and control light and temperature in children’s bedrooms, achieving a more restful night’s sleep for children. Duette® Blinds are made with SmartCord or LiteCord operating systems, which remove the need for dangerous dangling cords.
The blinds are available in a Kaleidoscope of colours, so they are perfect for creating a peaceful and restful children’s bedroom.
Bad dreams, rooms being too light in the sumer or being cold are the top three reasons for my two ending up in my bed during the night so Duette® Blinds sound like an all round great idea and are on the 2016 home wish list.
Is that the same in your house? What about the sleep needs – do you agree with how much sleep children need by age? Let me know your thoughts.
