Counseling TidBits

As we move forward with the second half of the school year, our students may be more exhausted as they re-adjust to early days and late nights.  Research suggests that the average teenager needs between 8 to 9 ½ hours of sleep a night! Many teens say they get between 5-6 hours of sleep on an average night. Click HERE for an article addressing how to help your teen get some rest.
