 Pediatric experts suggest parents ban electronics from children's bedrooms.   They say devices like tablets, smartphones and video games can prevent kids from falling asleep, even the backlit screens can disturb sleep patterns.

Research has shown children who leave their devices on overnight sleep up to one hour less on average.  

Parents can help unplug their kids at night by decreasing their screen time, establishing a bedtime routine and leading by example.
