New Study Suggest Removing All Electronics From Children’s Bedrooms

A new study published in the journal Pediatrics finds that children who sleep with televisions and other “small-screened devices” in their rooms get less sleep than those who do not, Reuters reports. The authors analyzed data from 2,048 fourth and seventh graders enrolled in an obesity study, and revealed that subjects with TVs in their rooms slept for 18 minutes less than those without. Moreover, children who slept near phones or other portable devices slept approximately 21 minutes less than children sleeping without them.
