Parents are the protectors of Children after God, Some parents do not have time taking good care of their Children due to work factor. This can affect the Child somehow as he or she would lack parental control, advice and others.

Some parents leave the home very early in the morning even when the children are still sleeping and return late at night.

Due to tiredness after a busy and stressful day at work, some parents go straight to the bed without checking on their Children. This could be bad as a child could be sleeping on a wrong position and twisting his or her body parts.

The repetition of the bad sleeping posture by that child could possibly lead to developing what is called "postural defects."

Postural defects are abnormalities that position the body wrongly. Once it is developed by the child, it becomes part of him or her unless serious attention on correcting the body part is carried out effectively.
