Study suggests providing beds to disadvantaged children increased sleep duration

A new study in the December 15 issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine suggest that providing beds to socioeconomically disadvantaged children can reduce the presence of electronic devices in the bedroom and increase nighttime sleep duration, while brief parent education about basic healthy sleep habits can result in even better sleep hygiene, with significant reductions in electronics in the bedroom. Study findings underscore the potential preventive benefits and cost-effectiveness of brief parent sleep education for sociodemographically diverse families
