During sleep we progress from a light to a deep sleep state, and the muscles in the roof of the mouth (soft palate), and throat relax to a state that they partially block the airway and vibrate. The more narrowed the airway, the more forceful the airflow becomes causing the tissue vibration to increase, and the snoring to grow loud. Many factors, such as the anatomy of your mouth and sinuses, alcohol consumption, allergies, and your weight, can lead to snoring.
Even children can suffer from sleep apnea. If your child exhibits any of the symptoms associated with sleep deprivation, such as chronic irritability, hostility and a drop in their grades, you might be looking at a case of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea symptoms can also mimic those of ADHD.
