London, Oct 14: A new study has revealed that children, who have regular bedtimes, are considerably less likely to have behavioral and emotional problems as compared to the kids who go to bed at odd hours.
The University College London (UCL) study, which was conducted on more than 10,000 children, found that youngsters with inconsistent bedtimes may demonstrate more behavioural issue, like hyperactivity and problems with peers, and show symptoms similar to jet lag, the Guardian reported.
According to the study, kids with erratic bedtimes or who went to bed after 9pm were likely to come from more socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
The research was published in the journal Pediatrics. (ANI)
