When it comes to school age children, one topic that seems to always top the headlines is bullying. A new study is making a connection between lack of sleep and bullying behavior. The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Michigan, found that children who bullied other children at school were twice as likely to have sleep problems.
Although the researchers plan to conduct more research on this topic in order to link bullying and sleep more closely, they do give some suggestions to help children sleep better and therefore be less aggressive in the meantime. Among these suggestions are taking the TV out of your child’s bedroom and making sleep your household’s number one priority.
