Regular Bedtimes


Scientists studied the bedtimes of more than 10,000 children in the U.K. as reported by their mothers at age 3, 5, and 7. At age 7 the children's behavior was assessed by the mothers and teachers. The children with irregular bedtimes had more behavioral problems than those with regular bedtimes, and changing to regular bedtimes significantly improved behavior. "For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven." (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

PositiveTip: Regular bedtimes are an important influence on children's behaviors.
