GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – Want your kids to get more sleep?  Get screens out of the bedroom!

A new study has found that kids who have easy access to TV, ipads and cell phones in their  bedrooms go to bed 37 minutes later and get 21 minutes less sleep per night.  Researchers say brightly lit screens make kids less tired.

So, a simple solution for more sleep?  Remove the  screens.
