Too much TV time linked to poorer sleep in kids
For all the parents who've ever banged their heads against the wall wondering why their kids won't sleep, a new study offers at least some partial clues. The research, out today in the journal Pediatrics, finds that the more TV kids watch, the less they tend to sleep. The connection is fairly intuitive – even adults can get wired staring at screens for too long. But the study adds to a growing body of evidence suggesting that too much screen time in childhood is at least linked to, if not the cause of, poorer health, both physical and mental.
