Not getting enough sleep is common among many teens due to late nights doing homework then having to wake up very early in the morning and this can cause several health risks like drinking alcohol, using drugs and performing poor academically. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that schools start no later than 8:30 am to give teens the opportunity to get enough sleep and be well rested . The American Academy of sleep medicine says that teens need at least  8 to 10 hours for good health. Teens who do not get enough sleep are more at risk for being overweight, have symptoms of depression and not engage in physical activity. 2/3 high school students get less than 7 hours of sleep a night because of homework and technology
