According to U.S. pediatricians in children’s early school age who snore have a higher risk of behavioral problems later than the rest of his peers, says study.
Scientists have found that 2 and 3-year-old children who snore loudly and frequently, may have problems such as lack of concentration and hyperactivity in school. More than one third of such children are at increased risk of behavioral problems like, for 10-12% of children who snore frequently, according to scientists from the Research Center Pediatric Hospital in Cincinnati.

Scientists warn, however, that no breathing problems lead directly to problems with concentration and behavior, or, if snoring is “treated” this will improve children’s behavior later. Children sometimes snore, especially when cold, this is not alarming, researchers explain. They point out that only when snoring in young children is frequently or permanently, this should prompt parents to more closely monitor the child’s behavior.
Snoring is a serious problem in earlier or later in our lives affects us. Unfortunately, many people do not realize how serious it may be the problem. For example, snoring in children may mean that they have asthma. Some people snore all night, every night, while others only when falling asleep or sleep on their backs. Some snore when taking medication, or when they have a cold. More than 40% of children who snore and 26% who do not snore suffer from asthma.
In a study of Australian children aged 2 to 5 years were found striking evidence that 11% of them snore, those who make more than 4 times a week are likely to develop different types of cough. Nearly 30% of the surveyed children cough at night, and 62% had already snoring night coughing. If not treated, continuous snoring can bring your heart problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attack, prone to depression, decreased libido, potency, or even shock.
Intestinal worms aren’t such bad guys
The parents of snoring children should not worry. Good prior consultation with a doctor to monitor your child a few nights to determine whether the child has difficulty breathing.
Snoring is often a symptom of apnea (stopping breathing for seconds during sleep). Most children snore occasionally in their sleep, but in most cases it is not cause for concern. The culprit is often the common cold, to release mucus in the throat and thus hinders normal breathing. Only 3% of small snoring children (mostly between 2 and 6 years) tonsils are so large that they cause apnea, in which breathing stops for at least 6 seconds while sleeping. This health problem is usually “robbing” the dream of the children and they cannot rest well. It generally effects on their behavior and ability to concentrate.
