twenty-three hours per day. One hour allowed for eating. They are too much of a nuisance if they are awake.
Starting at about 13 years old to the rest of your adolescence, you should get around 9-10 hours of sleep every night.
Although I think the 23 hour suggestion is an option worth considering
School-aged kids between the ages of 5-10 need 10-11 hours of sleep per night and children age 10-17 need between 8.5-9.25 hours per night. Another source outlines 9-12 hours of sleep per night for school aged kids...so there definitely is quite a range. By 13 or 14, shooting for 8-9 hours is usually a good goal, but some kids definitely do require more sleep than others. The best way to tell if your teenager is getting enough sleep is to assess how they are in the morning. If it's impossible to get them out of bed, then try getting her to bed earlier so that she gets more sleep. Not that every teenager isn't cranky in the morning, but if mornings are unbearable, sleep deprivation may be to blame.
Depending on the daily activities, normally a good 7 - 8 hours will be enough. But if having hectic sports then may requires 10 - 12 hours of restful sleep.
When I was 13-14 years old I would get around 7 hours of sleep and still be tired. I felt I needed 9 hours, but I need more rest then some people.
I say 8-10 hours of sleep! It's weird the younger we are the more sleep we need then we go through a few years of not needing too much say like the ages between 7-13. By the time we hit 14 or 15 we start sleeping more. Then it wanes again around 19-25 or so and after that , we want as much sleep as we can get, then when we hit our seniors years, we need less sleep. You'll find yourself waking up at 4am and staying up til 6pm at night.
They need about 8-10 hours per day, that should be enough to go thought the day, perform well and not getting tired.
I think almost 8 hours..these aged kids are too obsessed with your phones to think about somebody else. Everything should be balanced well!!
A schoolchild usually needs to sleep about 10 hours every night. When deciding on a bedtime, bear in mind what time your child has to get up and how long it takes them to get ready for school.
Minimum of 8 hours at least. I also think that their diet or the amount of food they eat daily and the activities they do during the day would also be factors to consider.
I also do like the 23 hours suggestion, if only it were possible...
When I was that age my doctor told me 8-10 hours. My brother is turning 13 and he was told 8-12 hours.
8 hours is enough for everybody.. especially those level of ages. They really need enough sleep.
Teenagers need more sleep than adults, the neuro-connections in their brains are going crazy, making new connections. It also depends on the teenager some need more sleep than others, too little sleep makes teens even more grumpy and mono-syllabic than usual.
@cubesz...Nine hours is healthy for their busy schedules.
About 8 to 10 hours for 13 or 14 years' old to get. because it makes new cells of the body
Well, I'm 14 and I can't get less that 9 and a half hours of sleep. So, i think that is the least amount.
8 hours should be enough so they wont be tired throughout the day.
A young child should sleep as much as possible so allow their brain to develop. I love sleeping.
I believe it's 8-10. But really, that's almost impossible.
With high schools starting at 8am, most kids have to get up around 5:30-6:00 to get there on time. That would mean falling asleep between 8pm and 10pm.
With their circadian rhythms changing to late morning to late night - it's contrary to what we make them do. And with activities and hours of homework?
My daughter does well to get to bed at 11pm most week nights, but it's surely not enough for her.
I think it's down to the individual child. Although I think around 9 hours to be ideal. It's important that their bodies and brains have the time to rest and recouporate.
owing to the distractions that teens encounter these days, most of them get by with only 5-6 hours only. They don't realize that the minimum number of hours they should sleep is 8, it gets better if it's more and more.
Eight hours will be OK, provided the child does not feel sleepy and tired during daytime. There will be individual differences in the requirement of sleep.
A teenager should get around 91/4 hours of sleep a night. This allows them to reach REM sleep and maintain a solid fluctuation through the five levels of sleep to allow for proper brain functioning during the day.
I think 8-10 hours but I doubt they will even if they have that much time.
I think it is a lot. I know that whenever I was woken up for school I was sure I needed another four hours of sleep.
i think for that age children's 8 hours per day sleep is enough!!!
I am sure it varies with each individual, but webmd recommends 8-9 per day for 12-18 year olds.
im 14 and i have to get at least 14 hours sleep otherwise i wont get up

How much sleep do you consider adequate to function properly, personally?The conversation about sleeping has been popping up a lot recently. Fellow hubbers and I have been joking about the idea of never going to bed. What is adequate sleep, for you?

How much sleep do you get in a night?We are told as adults that we need 8 hours of sleep to be healthy physically and mentally. But statistically speaking most people don't even get 6 hours. How much do you get? If not much, why not?
