Parents need to make sure their kids stay in some sort of sleeping routine during the summer holidays.
This is the expert opinion of Sammy Margo, author of The Good Sleep Guide and The Good Sleep Guide for Kids, who observed habit and rhythm are vital when it comes to keeping children in line.
She added that little ones could start to get grouchy at different times of the day if they do not have enough rest.
"Make sure they have a good amount of daylight exposure, lots of running around to tire them out and lots of fresh air," Ms Margo remarked.
She went on to note that kids can be very temperature-sensitive, so their duvet may need to be of a lower tog in the summer months if the weather is good.
According to the NHS, a five-year-old needs 11 hours of sleep a night, while an 11-year-old requires 9.5 hours.
This highlights how school kids still need to go to bed at an appropriate time to ensure they are fully refreshed and ready for the coming day.
