I’m nine years old, and I can’t sleep! A couple of nights ago, I didn’t fall asleep until 5:00 a.m.! I don’t know whether to go to a doctor or not.
What to do with kids who can’t sleep
You must be pretty sleepy during the day! Sleeplessness can have a variety of causes. This causes may include
- taking certain medications
- drinking caffeine-containing beverages,
- some medical conditions in which nighttime symptoms prevent you from going to sleep.
I suggest that you see your pediatrician: she can help you find out why you are not sleeping and get you sleeping again! Only if you know which is the cause, I can provide you a deeper answer.
So, if you have an answer to the question “why I can’t sleep” from your doctor, I am sure you will get also the right treatment.
