Too much time spent on touchscreens could be affecting your child's sleep.
Researchers in the United Kingdom studied over 700 families. They found 75 percent of parents said their little ones used an iPad or smartphone for an average of nine to 45 minutes a day.
Researchers found every hour of daily touchscreen use equaled about 15 minutes less sleep.
They say the stimulating content of online games and videos may make it harder for kids to fall asleep.
