Students are at their desks but their brains are at home in bed.”

hy are typical teenagers never tired at 11 p.m. but they hate getting up in the morning? Are they lazy? No, the good news is that it’s natural.
Everyone has a natural body clock which tells them when to wake up and fall asleep. In teenagers, the chemical that controls sleep, melatonin, is in their brains between 11.00 p.m. and 8.00 a.m. The result is that teenagers don’t feel tired late in the evening but, when they get up before 8 a.m. their brain is telling them to sleep. This lack of sleep means they are often unhappy, angry, can’t learn and get bad marks.

n the US, a lot of high schools start at about 7.30 in the morning. This means the students are at their desks after only five or six hours’ sleep. However, they need 9-10 hours because their bodies and brains are still developing so they are very tired. Tiredness means 20 percent of high school students fall asleep during their first two hours of school.
Sleep scientists are researching the problem. They say that it is crazy to fight nature so the only answer is for schools to start later. As one scientist said, ‘At 7.30 a.m. students are at their desks but their brains are at home in bed.’ Luckily, some head teachers listened to the new scientific advice and changed their school hours. The results are very interesting: teachers and parents say students behave better, learn more, get better marks and fewer students drop out.
Who says these things? Write PARENTS or TEENAGER.

What time are they said? Write NIGHT or MORNING.

  1. Didn’t you hear me? It’s time to get up! PARENTS MORNING
