  • i had the same problem with my son he is 6years old and had slight black rings around his eyes i was a little worried because he is a great eater and a very active child but he wouldnt sleep at night he would lay awake and stare at the stars on the celling..
    so i had my suspicions and called the doctor and he said everything was fine he wasent anemic nor a bad eater he just layed awake thinking about his next busy day! he doesnt like to not do anything hes a very active 6year old.. he goes to school..
    he plays baseball and rides dirtbikes..
    and whatever else he wants to do for funn!
    i hope this little bit of info helped you..
    but to be safe you should call your primary doctor just to be safe..
    all children are different

  • My 7 year old son has my paleish complexion, my 4 year old daughter her daddy's German heritage. BOTH of my kids get dark circles when they're exhausted. It's easier to see on my son though.
