The consequences of childhood insomnia are serious. Therefore, it's important to detect and treat insomnia in children early.
One study looked at the sleep of over 4,000 students of secondary school age and found that children who were bullied were almost 20 times more likely to suffer from insomnia compared to other children.
It's important to note that insomnia isn't the only symptom of childhood bullying - anxiety is common, too.
In conclusion, childhood insomnia shouldn't be ignored - and neither should one of its root causes; bullying.
