'Small screens' prevent kids from sleeping, study finds

from CTV News

Children who have access to tablets or smartphones in their bedrooms get less sleep than children who do not have the devices with them at night, a U.S. study said Monday. The findings in the January 5 edition of the journal Pediatrics show that having a so-called "small screen" within reach was slightly worse than a television set when it came to sleep deprivation in a group of 2,000 middle school kids. Overall, those with access to smartphones and tablets got nearly 21 fewer minutes of sleep per night than children whose rooms were free of such technology, and they were more likely to say they felt sleep deprived. more
