It's time that parents start minutely checking their children's sleeping habits or if they are having any troubles while sleeping because researchers suggest that the odds are triggered if a child is habitual of seeing some violent or age-inappropriate programs on TV.
Above are the findings of a new study that was published in the journal Pediatrics. It has clearly mentioned in its column that violent or age-inappropriate programming have been associated with the causes of increasing odds and putting children at higher risks of suffering from problems of falling asleep, staying asleep or having nightmares while sleeping.
Previous studies have also consistently linked media with the disrupted sleeping patterns among children. They have also claimed that behavioral problems in kids are increasing every day but unfortunately researchers aren't sure that whether the risks are anywhere associated with their TV viewing or not.
The recent study performed by researchers at the Seattle Children's Research Institute in a manner sought answer to above. Lead study author Ms. Michelle Garrison and her colleagues took into account the sleeping habits and TV-watching habits of 565 kids all aged between 3-5 years.
"Making a relatively simple change in what kids are watching is a change worth the effort", Ms. Garrison found from the study. "Sometimes parents feel overwhelmed by the idea of getting rid of TV altogether, but switching shows can make a big difference".
