(46,73 ± 1,11/54,33 ± 2,18; p=0,02) were observed. Also, significant correlations between Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and Beck Depression Inventory II (r= 0,51, p=0,02), and The Children’s Sleep Habits Questionnaire (r=0,45, p<0,01) were observed. Similarly, moderate significant correlation was observed between Beck Depression Inventory II and The Children’s Sleep Habits Questionnaire.
