Trouble sleeping? A memory foam mattress can help. If your kids are having trouble sleeping there a number of things you can try in order to help them get quality sleep one of which is investing in a memory foam mattress. A memory foam mattress will offer all the comfort and support they need in order to get a good night’s sleep.
Memory foam does this by responding to heat and molding to the shape of your child’s body. This means that no matter how quickly your child grows a memory foam mattress will always offer an unparalleled level of comfort and support. But there are other problems with getting children to sleep and, in the case of teenage boys, video games seems to be one of the main culprits.
I always hear negative comments about videogames? Do they have any benefits?
Yes video games do have benefits and can help your child in their development and these benefits have become more apparent with family oriented games. Videogames can be played with family and friends and so help your child develop their social skills.
Most videogames have strict rules and boundaries and don’t allow the player to cheat so may develop their sense of fair play. Videogames also develop your child’s reaction times and co-ordination. Certain videogames have other benefits too. You can get strategy games which are extremely historically accurate.
These games can bring history to life and urge your child to learn more about the period in which they have been participating. Recent videogames even get your child exercising while they play!
So what are their downsides?
As videogames become more realistic there is a growing fear that violent action games can harm your child. Experts say that they are different to violent films in that the player makes a choice about the violent acts they commit on screen.
While there is fierce debate amongst enthusiasts and psychologists in this area parents can play their part. Violent videogames are rated by the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) and cannot be purchased by minors.
Parents should not be swayed into buying them for their kids.
A recent study has also shown that boys aged 11 – 14 are increasingly playing videogames just before bed. This hinders your child from getting a good night’s sleep as their brain is being stimulated far too much for the time of day.
The government has launched their Boys into Books campaign which aims to get fathers reading to their kids before bed. This strengthens the parent-child relationship and helps your child unwind before sleep.
Couple this with a memory foam mattress and you have a perfect combination for a relaxed body and mind. Your child will awake feeling refreshed and ready for their day at school.
