  After three nights in a row, my son fell ill

  Citizen Liu Xiaowei has some troubles these days-her son who is in the sixth grade is sick again.

"My son has been in poor health since he was a child. As long as he sleeps for a few nights, he is particularly prone to get sick." At this point, Liu Xiaowei sighed repeatedly.

  Liu Xiaowei enrolled her son in several tutoring classes and bought a lot of practice papers for Xiaoshengchu.

The son is very obedient. Even though the extracurricular class is very full, the child still finishes all the homework without complaint.

"Except Mondays, he has to go to extracurricular classes after school for the rest of the day." Liu Xiaowei said that her son's daily schedule is full. After the extracurricular classes are basically completed after 19:30, sometimes they will After 20:30.

When my son came home, sometimes he didn't even care for dinner, so he started to write homework left by the school teacher.

"After finishing these homework, he has to catch up with the extracurricular homework." Liu Xiaowei said that her son does not have enough sleep time every day, and often can't sleep until 22:30.

In the past few days, the amount of homework for his son's extracurricular class has gradually increased, and his sleep time has been less.

Seeing her son dozing off while doing homework, Liu Xiaowei was really distressed, and she was afraid that her son's body would not be able to bear it.

  “I don’t know if it’s because the child is too busy during this period. I didn’t go to bed until after 23:00 for three consecutive days. The child fell ill the other day.” Liu Xiaowei said that she was at work at the time and received a call from the child’s head teacher at noon. , Said that after lunch at school, the child said dizziness and stomach ache.

Liu Xiaowei hurried to the school to pick up the child, and took the child to the hospital.

The doctor's conclusion is: a gastrointestinal cold caused by insufficient rest and decreased immunity.

  Faced with her son's physical problems, Liu Xiaowei was in a dilemma: "Should I take care of my child's study or his body?"

  Some elementary school students don’t have enough sleep time

  The reporter conducted a survey on 20 elementary school students and their parents in different schools. Among them, 9 primary school students in grades 1 to 4 went to bed before 21:30, got up from 6:30 to 7:00 the next day, and the other 6 students from 5 to 6 Primary school students in grades go to bed before 22:00 and wake up at 6:30 the next day. The other five primary school students in grades 5 to 6 go to bed after 22:30.

  "After the school is over, the child's homework is basically completed, and going home is at most to preview the content of the next day's class or read extracurricular books." Citizen Liu Fang said that his daughter is now in the second grade, and the child's sleep time has been basically maintained. In 9 hours.

"The child has formed this kind of time rule. If you go to bed at 20:50, you will gradually fall asleep after listening to ancient poems or historical stories, and get up at 6:45 the next day." In Liu Fang's view, if the child goes to bed late, In the daytime class will be boring

  "My child is not very good at math. I am afraid that she will be under pressure when she enters junior high school, so she enrolled in an after-school tutoring class." Zhou Yun said that her son is in grade 6 this year, and he is about to enter junior high school. Mathematics has always been the child's. Short board.

In order to prevent her son from falling behind after entering junior high school, she not only enrolled her child in 3 math tutoring classes, but also asked her to do a lot of exercises after class. For this reason, the child must go to bed after 23:00 every night.

  Junior high school students sleep differently

  The reporter conducted a survey on 15 junior high school students and their parents from different schools. Most middle school students and their parents said their children did not get enough sleep.

  Yang Jing's child is in the first year of middle school. After washing up before 22:00 every night, he goes to bed and gets up at 6 the next day.

"The child's sleep time is almost 8 hours, occasionally less." In Yang Jing's view, after entering junior high school, the child can hardly go to bed before 21 o'clock in the evening.

The schoolwork in junior high school is stressful, and when to go to bed mainly depends on the children and parents.

Some children are quick to complete their homework, some are procrastinated, and some are self-demanding. Some parents will assign other learning tasks to their children in addition to homework, which will affect their sleep time.

  Wang Lin feels that for a son who is about to enter the third year of junior high school, perhaps the first thing to be deprived of is sleep time.

Because the speed is relatively slow, the time for children to complete their homework is basically after 23:00.

"I can only urge the child to move faster and go to bed as early as possible." Wang Lin said that she still has a better mentality, mainly focusing on the child's health, regardless of his performance.

But some parents are more demanding. After their children finish school homework, they will be allowed to continue their studies.

"Some students in the children's class can only fall asleep after 24 o'clock, and they have to get up before 6 o'clock the next day." Wang Lin said.

  High school students go to bed late

  The reporter conducted a survey on 10 high school students and their parents from different schools. Basically all students have insufficient sleep.

  Xiaolin, a freshman in high school, said that since she entered high school, she has fully realized the pressure of high school.

"The courses have increased all of a sudden. I can't keep up with the rhythm without reviewing after class. It's normal to go to bed late." Xiaolin said that after attending high school, she went to sleep after 24 o'clock almost every day, and at 5:30 the next day. Then I got up.

"To be honest, after high school, if a student goes to bed before 23:30, it becomes a weird thing." Xiaolin said, some students in the class often rely on drinking coffee to refresh themselves in order to stay awake during the day.

  During the investigation, the reporter found that most high school students went to bed after 23:00.

Academic pressure, thick practice papers, frequent examinations, and parents’ expectations are the main reasons why high school students cannot go to bed early.
