Sleep Recommendations Aren't Being Followed

Posted: Updated:

Children today don't get enough sleep but neither did their parents or their grandparents or even their great grandparents.

Researchers looked at sleep recommendations from the past 110 years.

They consistently found that children slept about 40 minutes less than recommended.

And every generation since 1900 blamed modern times for kids not getting enough sleep.
