I concur. As a child and all the way through my 20s, I slept on my back, maybe 1 pillow.

IMHO, if a kid has abnormal posture, it's not that they're not trying to stand up straight, they can't! My mother harped on my posture as a child-- but it's not like I wasn't trying to stand up straight or was intentionally rolling my feet inward as I walked. All those clues... and they don't pick this up until I'm in my mid 30s? Geez.
28 degrees cervicothoracic, 34 degrees thoracolumbar, not diagnosed until age 34. Get yourself and your children screened early!
