Related Links

(HealthDay News) -- Insomnia is often thought of as an adult problem. But children, too, can have sleepless nights.

The Nemours Foundation offers these potential causes for childhood insomnia:

  • Being afraid of the dark.
  • Having nightmares or bad dreams.
  • Feeling stressed out or anxious about school or home life.
  • Going through a major change in life, such as parents getting a divorce, moving, an illness or a death in the family.
  • Being uncomfortable in some way, such as being too hot or too cold, hungry or too crowded in bed.
