University of Michigan scientists have determined that school bullies do not get enough sleep. Their research indicates that pugnacious and pushy kids were more likely to suffer from sleep disordered breathing and sleeplessness. They found 23 percent of children who bullied had conduct problems and had discipline issues in school, often snored …an indication of sleep disordered breathing and were sleepier during day hours. The sleep deprived were more prone to aggressive behavior.   We are suggesting you sing a lullaby to the bully but parents who are alerted to their kids bully behavior may now have another avenue for help.
