How much sleep does a 16 year old male need?

Sleep when you're tired, wake up naturally. That's how much sleep we should all be getting. Doesn't work out like that however, especially if you've got a job or are studying!

I aim for about 7 hours of sleep a night - anything on top of that is a bonus.

Well, if he slept 10 years, non-stop, it would bypass all those difficult years.

I think that the average 16 year old male would do good on between 7-8 hours of sleep each night.

Two full sleep cycles at for a piece that eight hours in all. But if you really pushed with exams etc always try fro five that we you should have one solid cycle

Your typical answer will be 8 hours. So sleeping from midnight to noon will only screw up your sleep schedule. Take it from someone who has had a messed up sleep schedule for years (military), 8 hours works best.

Depends on your lifestyle and how energetic or lazy you are. Most 16 year old males i know seem to sleep forever! and hate getting up, unless its to go out with their mates. I think that most people (except elderly who only need a few hours) average - or would like to average - between 6 and 8 hours a night, which is considered healthy.

as much as he can get i let my 16 yr old sleep as much as he needs on the weekend when hes had enough he will wake up naturally

At least 8 hours, preferably 10 as he is still growing until he is 18.

as much as a day will allow...most 16yr olds wake up in time to socialise with their friends in the evening....until college or work or just signing on gets them up!!...but the latter is only 1 day a week in every fortnight!lol....teenagers tut!!!..how i wish i was 1 !!

There are very large individual differences between people and how much sleep they need. There are some people who can get away with 5 hours or less, others who need 10 hours or more.

Typically, the younger we are, the more sleep we need. The typical '8 hour' recommendation is based on adults, so it is likely that a 16 year old might need 9 or 10 hours.

School Week: 7-8-9
Weekend- 10

not as much as he thinks he does!!

My fourteen year old son will have twenty three hours a day if I let him and would still wake up a grumpy bast*rd.

Must be a bloke thing!

there have been new studys that the growing teen ager need 9-11 hrs of sleep. their bodys are going through maturity, they are trying to repair any bruises,cuts and scrapes they may accumulate. but on the flip side, depression causes people to sleep alot also. watch out for other signs.

My doctor told me and my 16 yr. old bro. that 8hrs. is a common misconception. In reality were supposed to sleep 10 hrs. a day.

8 hours a night on average , but some need more or less
