One in three primary school children 'don't go to sleep until midnight' study claimsA third of primary school children are not going to sleep until around midnight, according to a new study. New research from bedmaker Silentnight and the University of Leeds found 36% of primary school age children get

eight hours or less sleep a night. And 15% of British youngsters aged 11 or under are heading into school each

morning after less than seven hours of shut eye. Now psychologist Dr Anna Weighall is urging parents to help their children have at least 10 hours of sleep daily, to boost their quality of life and avoid mental health problems

. She said: Our research, carried out in conj

unction with Silentnight, shows a strong relationship between poor sleep and reduced health related quality of life. Psychologist Dr Anna Weighall is

, Dr Weighall continued. Likewise, poor sleep patterns can make mental health issues worse. I certainly think that lack of sleep can make mental health issues worse. A Harvard University study, from 2009, showed that 90% of children with major depression have some kind of sleep problem. It claimed ov

er half of insomnia cases related to depression, anxiety or psychological stress. It also linked poor sleep with disorders like ADHD and autism. Studies also claim those struggling with sleep are more likely to be irritable and lacking in conce

ntration, impacting academic development, causing problems paying attention in class and keeping up with school work. Children can stay up la

o) It can also affect emotional regulation, which can affect peer relationships too. Psychologists also argue that sleep deprivation decreases the efficiency of something called top-down inhibition which enables children to control and regulate their behaviour. This behaviour has been shown to limit the functioning of the emotional processing at the centre of the brain (the amygdala) which explains the effects of lack of sleep on mood and emotion. The research from the

University of Leeds found among concerns keeping children awake at night were worries about bullying and worries about homework. An alarming one in six parents who took part in the universitys research said their childrens sleep has been affected by bullying. The University of Leeds and Silentnight research was conducted with 1,000 UK parents of children aged between 6-11, with an equal gender s

Dr Aric Sigman, a fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, said: It is imperative that parents are made aware of young children consuming increasing amounts of recreational screen time in bed. More screen devices leads to more scre

en consumption. If parents were to put a refrigerator in their childs bedroom, that child is likely to eat more. And if the fridge contained a choice between broccoli and Ben and Jerrys ice cream, one can be reasonably confident that the broccoli will never leave that fridge.
