Researchers at British Columbia University have looked forward to research on youth affairs, and their parents would not want to sleep on the results.
Researcher Wendy Hall with the University of Nursing School and Elizabeth Netteri with the School of Population and Public Health have found that among countries, cultures and seniors, there are several key ways to restrain children.
"Because they go through rapid growth and development through all their childhood years, the sleep problems can have a great impact," Haller said On the beach Host Gordia Makarenko. "Very risky behaviors, their memories, their recognition, their ability to do well in school."
After examining 44 studies on youth "sleep hygiene" – the opportunities and practices that lead to a good night's sleeping hall and netwy found sleep routines and limiting technology before beds are some of the best ways for adolescents Get better sleep. The study, Hall said, covered almost 300,000 children in their samples.
For example, children – even older kids – benefit from regular bed linen, quiet room and read before bed.
Routines in general are helpful to sleep better, they found, pointing to one study that found a link between family dinners and quality rest.
Much evidence is also found when it comes to restricting the use of technology before bed, Hall said.
"In fact, as young as toddlers, they got an hour's less sleep if they had an hour of exposure to TV in the evening," Hall said.
"For the adolescents and the older school-old kids, if they take their phones and their games in the bedrooms … that's really interrupting their sleep."
Parents are advised not to let children play video games or watch high-energy movies before bedtime.
Hall and Etther's research overview was published in the November Edition of the Journal Pediatric Respiratory Reviews.
