Regular bedtimes are linked to better behavior

To follow-up a little more on my last post, a new study published in the journal Pediatrics has concluded that changes in bedtime schedules in children are associated with behavioral problems. The study also found that children who had irregular bedtimes at ages 3 and 5 had significant improvements in behavior scores if their bedtime was regular by age 7. Getting kids into a regular bedtime routine does appear to have important impacts on behavioral development. While there are many things that have beneficial effects on behavior, having a regular bedtime is an important one.
