The American Academy of Sleep Medicine is releasing for the first time guidelines for how much shut-eye kids should be getting.
FOX's Jeff Monosso reports:
New guidelines from doctors who specialize in sleep disorders say that teens 13 to 18 years old should be getting eight to 10 hours of sleep per night.
Children ages one to two should sleep 11 to 14 hours and 12-to-16 hours of sleep, including naps for infants aged 4-to-12 months.
Saying that adequate sleep is linked to improved attention, behavior, learning, mental and physical health.
The American Academy of Pediatrics, which endorses the new guidelines, also recommends that TV and computer screens are turned off a half an hour before bedtime and that parents not allow kids to have screens in their bedrooms.
