A study of 6 years has found that young kids with sleep disordered breathing would manifest behavioral and social problems. The study was conducted by Dr Karen Bonuck from The Albert Einestein College of Medicine at the Yeshiva University .
Out of ten children 2-4 % have sleep apnea according to the American Academy of Otolaryngology and Neck Surgery. Enlarged tonsils and or adenoids could be the culprit.
If you notice any behavioral changes in your child or hear him snoring and especially with pauses in breathing you must discuss with your doctor .
