half of the school children present with sleep problems attributed to improper timings and new technologies, and 4% of these children in addition to develop disorders that require treatment, according to the Service of Pediatrics and the Sleep Unit of the Quirón hospital health of Valencia.
dr. Gonzalo Pin, head of the service, points to Efe that these disorders may manifest as a total time of sleep daily "inadequate, little-restorative and fragmented" , both by defect as by excess for your age, or in the "cronodisrupción", that is to say, the lack of harmony between the internal clock of the child and the external environment that surrounds you.
According to the specialist, when we sleep "it produces a sort of cleansing of our brain by removing a number of substances that we produce as a waste product during the activity of the day" so that the information can circulate without problems the next day.
So, warns Pin, if children sleep poorly, badly, or at times not scheduled for the next day will have more difficulties learning, control bad your mood or your behavior, and if this situation becomes chronic it will affect your system's defenses against infections, and are more likely to be obese or diabetics, among other diseases.
This type of sleep problems, he adds, have increased in the last decades for the new models of life marked by times inadequate, and the immersion of new technologies in the household.
According to the specialist, the rapid changes in the daily habits , the remoteness of the outdoor play and contact with nature, united to the misuse of technology and our schedules, especially after the introduction of the school day continued, "are not conducive to a good sleep hygiene".
on The contrary, it asserts Pin, many of the children suffer from the so-called "jet-lag" school, with a chronic deficit of sleep and a few hours of sleep are not consistent with your internal biological clock that may be influencing the quality of life of future generations.
From the drives of Pediatrics Quirónsalud it is recommended to complete a period of adaptation in the lap of vacation and incorporation into the routines of school, to avoid the appearance of disorders such as the "tiredness, apathy, sadness, despondency, anxiety and lack of concentration" .

Also Mínguez recommends a positive attitude on the part of the parents to help the children overcome this period of adaptive.
