[15] found an increase in yawning in kindergarten children, and an even greater increase in children attending the first year of primary school (5 times more than in kindergarten children). More recently, Chouard and Bigot-Massoni [16] confirmed the significant increase in yawning frequency when children learn to write and to read. Studies on sleep-wake rhythms in the adolescent reported an increase in sleepiness around the middle of the day [17].
