- The study in Pediatrics, funded by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health, surveyed more than 2,000 fourth- and seventh-graders in Massachusetts as part of a broader investigation into obesity in children. The majority of kids surveyed slept with a small screen by their side. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2015-01-05/kids-who-sleep-near-smartphones-get-less-shuteye-study.html
- Smartphones and tablets deprive children of more sleep than television. Research conducted by the University of California found that small screens like smartphones and tablets were worse than televisions for keeping children awake at night, with so-called small screen gadgets robbing them of 21 minutes' sleep each night, compared to 18 minutes for children with a television in their room.
