The Sleep-Deprived Teen: Why Our Teenagers Are So Tired, And How Parents And Schools Can Help Them Thrive. 

  • The Mountain Life hosts Lynn Ware Peek and Pete Stoughton talk with Lisa L. Lewis author of The Sleep-Deprived Teen: Why Our Teenagers Are So Tired, And How Parents And Schools Can Help Them Thrive.Teenagers are overloaded, strapped for time, and often asked to wake far earlier than they should because of school start times. It’s no surprise they’re sleep-deprived as a result, with far-reaching consequences. Lewis talks about the science of why sleep matters and how it changes during the teen years, how sleep affects mental health, athletic performance, academic success, and gives us an insider look at what it took to bring about California’s healthy school start times law that goes into effect in the 2023 school year.
