Nefarious NapStealers Steal Academic Performance

Edina High School Main Entrance in Edina, MN

Image via Wikipedia

{While|Inasmuch as} everyone {needs|requires} {varying|different} {quantities|amounts} of {sleep|rest} to {function|perform} {normally|well}, {researchers|scientists} have {confirmed|verified} that {teenagers|young people} {need|require} {more|greater quantities of} sleep than younger {children|kids} and {adults|older people} in order to {perform|achieve} their best in {school|academic pursuits}. {Hence|Therefore}, they are at a {greater|larger} {disadvantage|risk} to the {attacks|assaults} of Nefarious NapStealers and other sleep disorders. Studies have {proposed|shown} that {middle|junior high} school and high school {students|children} need at {least|a minimum} {9|nine} hours of {sleep|rest} for {peak|best} {performance|achievement} of their {academic pursuits|school work}, while it {seems|indicates} that {most|a majority of} adults only need {8|eight} hours of {sleep|rest} to {achieve normal functionality|perform normally}.

The problem is that in {teens|high schoolers}, the nefarious napstealers {actually|typically} take the form of hormones due to the biological changes that {occur|happen} {during|throughout} puberty, which {disrupt|interrupt} circadian rhythms and {do not allow these kids to fall|prevent these children from falling} asleep as early as they could when they were younger. {Typically|Normally}, {adolescents|teenagers} don’t {feel tired|get sleepy} until {11pm|11:00 p.m.} or {midnight|12:00 a.m.}, so it {becomes impossible|is extremely difficult} for them to {achieve|obtain} the {9|nine} hours of {sleep|rest} {necessary|required} and still {get to|arrive at} school on time.

One {proposal|discussion} to {help|aid} with the {issue|problem} is to {change|alter} {school start times|the time school begins}. {Schools|Local educational institutions} already {stagger|alter} {start|beginning} times to allow bus routes to {deliver|drop} children at the {appropriate|correct} schools at the {appropriate|proper} times, so the {older children|adolescents|high schoolers} should {have the latest start times|start school last}. In 1996, Edina High School in Minnesota changed it’s {class beginning|school start} time from 7:20{am| a.m.} to 8:30{am| a.m.} and {found|the result was} that it {dramatically|markedly} {improved|increased} students’ {performance|achievements} in {academic pursuits|school work}. The Nefarious Napstealers had no {control|sway} over {kids|children} who {before|previously} would {typically|normally} {sleep|nap} through their {first class|homeroom period}, regardless of their {interest|involvement} in the subject or activity.

We can {laud|hail} the {dramatic|extreme} {improvement|changes} and call for {global|overall} {sweeping|complete} changes in {school|class} {start|beginning} times, but {unfortunately|nevertheless} there are also other {factors|things} {involved|that affect the results}. The Edina case study, part of a 17-district CAREI School Start Time Study {showed|indicated} that {changing|altering} the {start|beginning} time {helped|aided} {significantly|noticeably}, but not {nearly|quite} as much as they had {hoped|predicted}. Another {issue|problem} is that with high school students other napstealing {factors|issues} are {at play|involved}, including extra-curricular activities, such as {sports|football}, {music|band}, {cheerleading|volleyball} and {clubs|societies} that {occur|meet} {before|preceding} and {after|following} school, as well as {part-time|temporary} {jobs|employement} that many {high schoolers|high school students} {have to get|must obtain} to {be able to afford|have the money} to {participate in|join} all of the {extra|additional school} activities. Another {huge|great} {factor|portion of the problem} is all of the {social|non-school} activities that high schoolers participate in that may or may not be related to school activities and an ever-increasing amount of time allotted to Internet use, texting, online social networking and a plethora of other siesta thieves and napstealers that nefariously whittle away at the finite amount of time available to today’s teenagers.

Parents need to do everything they can to help kids in these situations, from helping them to cut out caffeine and other stimulants that nefariously interfere with sleep patterns, as well as encouraging their adolescent children to take short afternoon naps to make up for the sleep they may not be getting at night. Parents should encourage their children to keep Internet, online social activities, texting and movie watching to a minimum during the week and minimize talking on the phone in the evening. These teenagers should also be exposed to sunlight as soon as they wake up, to help their bodies reset their inner sleep clock.

What ways can you think of to help adolescents and teenagers achieve better sleep?

    Pedicures are so great…Last night, the sweetie and I laughed like crazy as we were lying in bed and it felt so good to laugh that hard. It has been a while.

    I think people often feel guilty about taking a nap but I think as basic as drinking water when you feel thirsty — your body is trying to tell you something important.

The grandson has had me up since about 1 a.m. and showing no signs of going to sleep soon now either at 3:35 a.m. Wish we could figure out what his “sleep disorder” is and get it corrected so maybe my own sleep disorder would then self-correct!

  7. delayed2sleep says:

    My, but you are optimistic! I refer to the statement: “Your doctor will be able to accurately diagnose a sleep disorder…” That may be true of SOME disorders. It is VERY rarely true of the circadian rhythm sleep disorders, delayed sleep-phase disorder and free running (non-24) disorder. Many have searched for years and decades looking for a diagnosis and some understanding of these conditions.

    Please send our sympathies to Professor family, and add our thanks as well. I was Dr. student at Edina High School, graduating in 1962. At a turbulent time in my life, his class added stability, discipline and fun. I know I have made it through college without the experience of his high school class, and join his other students in saying that we have missed his class for anything.

    Sincere sympathies,

    yes, they traded up for T Jack Off but forget, they also traded up for John David Booty and to no avail.

    But if the Vikings are looking for some good news, check out this math. The Packers won the Superbowl with a roster of 53, 15 on IR plus 8 incoming draft picks. That means the Packers will have to cut 23 players which translates into treasure chest of players for the Vikings to pick up and sign. They meet all the requirements to be a Viking, they will be all ex Packers, they are not good enough to play for GB and none of them will ever expect to get to the Superbowl.

    The Metrodump $18 Mil in total much less $18 mil in repairs. My suggestion is that they play 2011 at Edina High School.

    That way they can safely sell out the games without leaning on the local business to avoid the TV blackouts. That same $18 mil can be re-routed over to Allied Moving vans for the inevitable move westward.

  29. Are you suffering from a sleep disorder known as sleep apnea? Chances are that you are not absolutely aware or you may be in denial. Unlike several disorders, sleep apnea is not simply diagnosed. No doctor may tell if you have got one solely when one consultation or visit. It is also not diagnosed through blood tests and other clinical procedures. It is typically the roommate or bed of a patient who may tell if someone has sleep apnea. That is because no person may extremely tell what goes on throughout his sleep, just like not everybody may tell if he extremely snores as a result of he may not hear himself do thus during his own sleep. There are general symptoms and signs that a person has sleep apnea. It is very that you …Los Angeles CPAP, Los Angeles sleep disorder, Los Angeles sno

  30. I agree with much of your review, for example both the public and clinicians need much more information than they now have. But my reaction to your first sentence is that got it backward: “Clinical practice related to sleep problems and sleep disorders has been expanding rapidly in the last few years, but scientific research is not keeping pace.”

    That depends on which sleep disorders you are considering! I have a circadian rhythm disorder. The researchers know about it, but the vast majority of doctors / nurses / psychologists etc do NOT know anything at all about these disorders. Therefore I (and others) went undiagnosed for many years, a burden which should have been avoidable.

I got a little seasick, mainly from my friends and I leaping into the 100 mph crosswind at the precise moment the ferry dipped off the crest of a wave, making it seem like we could jump 10 feet in the air and 20 feet backward with ease. I effectively overcame the sick feeling by taking a nap.
