INTRODUCTION Sleep is one of the most crucial functions of the human body. While a person’s body sleeps, many essential processes are completed, such as the rest for one’s body, the drainage of excess fluid and growth, amongst others. Regardless of the fact that sleep is such an essential process for the body, it is commonly disregarded by teenagers and young adults, who ironically need sleep more than adults do because they are in a stage of rapid growth and development (Pietrangelo, 2014).

Research has shown that lack of sleep negatively affects one emotionally, physically and academically (Peri, 2014).

Typically the amount of controlness will vary, this often occurs in the middle of a regular dream when the sleeping person soon realizes that they are dreaming (Nichols). Nightmares come from a result of many different reasonings. They happened to everyone, whether you are young or old, if you are dealing with a lot of stress, or even a fear of trauma, emotional problems, illness, and/or the use of certain medication or drug (Nichols). Clearly we have all experienced a nightmare before so you know that it is very difficult to go back to sleep. Sometimes the dream seems so real that we get freaked out a little bit.

It was also reported that Nadif does not have much memory of his time in Somalia or at the refugee camp. These symptoms tend to match the symptoms criteria of
Sophia always kept the hall light on when she went to sleep becauses she was still a little scared of the dark. She could hear that someone was there but she could not see who it was. “Sophia, I’m on the first step….” the voice said in a deeper tone. Whatever it was, it returned to wherever it came from because all Sophia could hear was a branch rubbing against her bedroom window.

Sleep paralysis is the inability to move or speak when you are either falling asleep or waking up. When a person experiences sleep paralysis, their brain knows that they are awake, but their body does not. The inability to move or speak comes from our bodies becoming paralyzed during the rapid eye movement stage of sleep in order to prevent us from acting out our dreams during sleep. Sufferers usually experience unpleasant hallucinations. The most common hallucination is experiencing some type of evil presence in the room, but having feelings of floating or flying is also common (Davis).
On top of any physical problems, sleep loss can cause emotional problems as well. Some teens have reported that they get stressed, sad, depressed, or worse from sleep loss, and sometimes, those emotional problems can cause kids to get insomnia, which makes it harder to get sleep.

They think that dreams are “ random meaningless firings of the brain that we don’t have when we are awake.” Others say dreams are necessary for mental, emotional, and physical health. Studies have shown the importance of dreams to our health and well-being. In one study, researchers woke subjects as they were falling into R.E.M. sleep.
A mental status exam was conducted on the child. She reported that she has trouble falling asleep at night because her parents do not lock the door at night.

Blima stated when she has these dreams her parents allow her to sleep with them.
Throughout the essay, the there’s repetition in the phrase “while we sleep.” This phrase affects the overall essay while leaving a strong impression on the audience. The phrase can appeal to ethos by pulling sympathy out of the audience because while there’s children working through the nights, they are just sleeping. Kelly makes them feel as if they are treating the issues of child labors as not important because it’s an issue they can just sleep through every night.
