Parents around the world have forever heard the phrase “five more minutes” when attempting get a teenager out of bed. However, maybe we should let them sleep longer. Recent studies have indicated that adequate sleep is the strongest factor in the well-being of teenagers and that a shortage of sleep can lead to poor academic results, anxiety, and depression. The data from the studies convinced the French Education Minister to approve a proposal to start school one hour later than usual. Do you think we should follow suit and propose that schools start one hour later for secondary students in Hong Kong?
