  • Their bodies are going through a lot of very rapid growth and change so they need to conserve more energy for that

  • Growing. I used to sleep a lot, but I always had a job outside of school so it was never out of control or anything.

  • Because they are growing. Their body is transitioning them from child to adult and the only time you grow is in your sleep.

  • Not sure of the reason, but I believe studies have shown teens naturally sleep more than adults or young children, so it's not just laziness. I would have to concur with the theory about growth and conserving energy especially in the brain.

    • That's definitely not a whole lot! Maybe shoot for another hour or two a night, it certainly couldn't hurt

    • ya i will start sleeping more after the 11 of June

  • To avoid their problems.
