According to a new report, it’s a good to idea to listen in on your children while they sleep because chronic snoring can learn to sleep disorders which can cause daytime tiredness, less concentration, learning difficulties, bedwetting and delayed growth.

In other words, they are going to have a hard time learning in school, too.


New studies say that snoring is linked to learning disabilities in children.

Up to five percent of children are chronic snorers at night.
