Children who sit around the TV all summer watching re-runs of Sponge Bob, music videos, and Family Feud (because Price Is Right sucks without Bob Barker) will take 3 minutes longer to fall asleep for every hour of TV watched. The bottom line is: children who play outside for hours at a time have better, more consolidated sleep. Perhaps moms already knew about this “secret” because why else would my mom make my brother and I play outside on Saturday morning besides for wanting to clean : )
Anyone interested in advocating for adult recess in the job world?! I’m in!
