Health Tip: What's Keeping Your Child Awake?
(HealthDay News) -- Insomnia is often thought of as an adult problem. But children, too, can have sleepless nights.
The Nemours Foundation offers these potential causes for childhood insomnia:
Being afraid of the dark.
Having nightmares or bad dreams.
Feeling stressed out or anxious about school or home life.
Going through a major change in life, such as parents getting a divorce, moving, an illness or a death in the family.
Being uncomfortable in some way, such as being too hot or too cold, hungry or too crowded in bed.
