It’s kind of a no-brainer that shipping the kids off to bed early makes for an overall healthier mom.
There’s more to it than just that, according to new research. Kids who fall asleep early are more likely to be healthier, and their moms have better mental health, research has found.
Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia and lead author Jon Quach said in a statement “So mums and dads, getting kids to bed early is not just great for them. It’s good for you, too.”
For the study, researchers used information collected from parents of kids who were 4 to 5 years old, then again when they were 6 to 7, and finally when they were 8 to 9 years old.
The key to the findings was an early bedtime, not how long the children slept. Source: Today
