Later Bedtimes Linked To Emotional Distress, School Problems In Teens.

Reuters (11/28, Jegtvig) reported that, according to a study published online Nov. 11 in the Journal of Adolescent Health, about 25% of US teens go to bed later than 11:30 pm on school nights. What’s more, these teens appear to experience higher degrees of emotional distress and have a more difficult time in school than their counterparts who get to bed at an earlier hour. Researchers analyzed data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health to arrive at these conclusions.
