Philosophically-oriented? Uh, no. Socrates would tear you to bits! Seriously, Luciano, turn off the tech and start prioritizing sleep. It will do you a world of good.

Lol this ain't those times


With that being said is only the beginning for me


Besides the tech, you need a whole lot of factors to improve sleep and they're all welcomed

I recognize the futility in asking this question, but do you recognize that you are not engaging in appropriately reciprocal dialogue? Is this deliberate or is there an issue that you need to come clean about? There is something truly off about the way you communicate, and it’s more than just normal teenage sophistry. Chronic sleep deprivation like you described earlier is implicated in all kinds of mental & physical illnesses, and it can mimic learning disabilities and exacerbate those that already exist. If you truly are sleeping as little as it appears, I would encourage you to consult a health care provider, who can help you get the rest your body and mind desperately need.

Oh I absolutely understood, people say it's my learning disabilities or due to being a bilingual person, but nope I think the sleep and thinking ability are more to play here


Anyways, I will look into it, but if a healthcare provider isn't always there could there always be an alternative?

First things first, turn off the tech about an hour before you go to bed and keep it somewhere outside your bedroom at night. Read a regular book.

If you’re using your phone as an alarm clock, it’s time to find an alternative. If you can’t afford a new alarm clock, then try a thrift shop.

Next, no exercise late at night. It amps up your body and makes it hard to fall asleep.

Make sure your room is as dark, quiet, and cool as possible.

No caffeine after lunch. None.

In the morning, get up and enjoy a few minutes in the sunlight as early as possible. It will help reset your internal clock.

If these steps do not improve matters, then seek out a health care provider for additional help.

I do think school has become more academic, but I don't think there are less activities. I think there are more activities today, more sports, more clubs and groups to join, they still do yearbook and student paper and every other activity I remember.

My daughter's public middle school - based on the test scores vs. district/state/nation; graduation rate; and on the percentage who continue education post high school - fits this model. Absolutely no shortage of activities, both within the classes and before- and after-school. And weekends.

Far, far more activities than we had (I also went to a public school with a high rate of graduation, high average college entrance exam test scores, high rate of graduates pursuing education).

What these kids have foisted upon them these days ... getting enough sleep is an issue, even in middle school.

honestly, randomparent is giving you a ridiculously hard time, and accusing you of being a lot less coherent than you actually are.

I am definitely not a troll. Luciano struggles to communicate his ideas in a coherent manner. I now understand that he has an unspecified learning disability, which does help explain some things, but I remain genuinely concerned about his chronic sleep deprivation, which is not healthy for anyone of any age, most especially a teenager. I am the parent of three children, two young adults and one high school student. I know the difference between typical teenage sophistry and disordered communication. Luciano displays the latter. Getting better quality sleep will help him think more clearly, so he can engage with all of us in more productive conversations.
