Children-owls more often than children-larks, have problems with school performance.
Moreover, according to scientists from the Berkley Institute, at school, owls not only try to inspect dreams in class, but also because of fatigue and chronic lack of sleep, they often have problems controlling emotions. The teachers simply complain about their bad behavior, not realizing that according to the biological clock of these children, the morning has not just arrived.

Interestingly, larks are more satisfied with their sleep than owls - the American experts, Webb Wills and Bonnet Michael came to this conclusion. The reason for this is that the larks sleep the same amount of hours every day, which ensures a good quality of sleep, and owls wait until the middle of the night until they are "cut down."
And if the larks have no problems with the regime, then scientists recommend owl parents to put their children to bed early.Then there is the hope of “leveling out” their mode. For this, scientists recommend more physical activity in the afternoon, quiet games or reading books in the evening or before bedtime.
