Feedback at 5: Sleep Schedules for Children

Posted: Updated:

Stricter bedtimes for children may be linked to better test scores.

Researchers looked at information about bedtimes and standardized test scores for more than 11,000 children who were part of a study of children in the U. K. The study looked at children at ages 3, 5, and 7.

Researchers noted that going to bed late didn't affect a child's development, but irregular bedtimes were linked to poor scores. The study was published in The Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

Do you have a strict sleep schedule for your children or yourself?

Do you think it impacts their or your behavior?
