If your child has some trouble concentrating, you may be able to blame it on their tonsils.
A new study suggests enlarged tonsils may not only make your child have trouble breathing while they sleep at night, but also have behavioral problems during the day.
A sleep researcher found kids scheduled to have their tonsils removed were more likely to be diagnosed with sleep disorders and with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
But, once they had the surgery, they did not experience those problems.
If your child snores regularly or has labored breathing when sleeping, you should meet with a pediatrician.
