Why putting your kid to bed on-time matters
Why putting your kid to bed on-time matters

A new study finds that putting your child to bed at the same time consistently
may give them a brain boost. Researchers at the University
College London administed tests to kids age seven. They found that children who
were put to bed at the same time consistently– how early or late it was didn’t
matter– performed better on the tests than kids who went to bed at different
times each night.

Researchers say the research suggests and inconsistent
bedtimes for kids may hurt their cognitive development by disrupting circadian
rhythms, and promoting sleep deprivation, when the brain is at a critical time
of development. Researchers say the findings held up even when they controlled
for other factors such as kids skipping breakfast or having a TV in their
bedroom.
