Our teens aren't getting enough sleep!

Teens don't get enough sleep in the U.S. for a variety of reasons, but University of Rochester researchers have a simple solution to this issue: a consistent bedtime enforced by parents. When teens ages 14 to 17 went to bed at a consistent time, they were found to sleep longer. Another interesting find: evening screen time and caffeine consumption did not significantly affect teens' sleep duration. Study co-author Ronald Rogge adds, "Even though adolescents start gaining self-sufficiency and independence, they still need sleep and might not prioritize that if left to their own devices."
