Family and friends can help cure teenage insomnia

Our teenagers aren't getting enough sleep.

From energy drinks to early school start times to cell phones and text messaging - perhaps it's a wonder our teenagers are getting any sleep at all.

A new study suggests that the best insomnia cure for teenagers can be found in the relationships friends and family have with your teen.

When Dr Maume of the University of Cincinnati looked at the school night sleep patterns of almost 1,000 children aged 12-15, he saw average sleep duration drop from more than 9 hours per night to less than 8.

Dr Maume argues that sleeping pills aren't the answer. Instead, parents who monitor the sleeping habits of their teenagers (especially when it comes to setting a bedtime) are more likely to see their child get suitable amounts of sleep.

Furthermore, Dr Maume found that teenagers were more likely to enjoy higher quality sleep if they felt a part of the school they attended and had friends who were positive, social and cared about their academic achievement.

Perhaps surprisingly, the study revealed that teenagers who watched more TV actually slept longer - but those who spent more time on a computer suffered from reduced sleep quality.
