Want to help your children get a good night’s sleep? Start by asking them not to use electronic devices at bedtime. Researchers at King's College London recently conducted a survey of existing studies which involved over 125,000 kids ranging in ages from 6 to 19. They discovered that children who use devices such as smartphones and tablets within 90 minutes of going to sleep are more likely to experience poor quality of sleep and an inadequate quantity of sleep, as well as excessive sleepiness during the day.
