Worried that your kids are not getting enough sleep? Guess what? Parents have had the same worry for 100 years, according to research cited in this article from HealthDay.
(HealthDay News)—With televisions, computers, cellphones, school work and extracurricular activities, parents worry that their kids are so busy that they aren't getting enough sleep.

"Kids are sleeping less than they used to, with sleep declining by about 1.25 hours over the last 100 years," said review co-author Tim Olds, a professor of health sciences at the Sansom Institute for Health Research in Adelaide, Australia.
