Screen exposure linked to poor sleep

A RECENT study of 10,000 young people found teens who watch more than one screen during the day take longer to get to sleep and sleep for less time than those who use only one device.

The research also found that teens who watch screens for more than four hours a day are nearly 50% more likely to take more than an hour to nod off.

Does this sound like you or your children?
