  • It depends on how long they sleep at night.

  • Teens do sleep a lot. But I would talk to the teen to make sure nothing is bothering him/her. It could be a sign of depression.

  • Okay....It's not normal with my teens. They sleep a good 8 or more hours every night and don't nap at all during the day. But we do not allow our teens to set their own bedtimes. As their parents, my husband and I know that teenagers need sleep and reinforce that with regular bedtimes and set sleep patterns.
