ABSTRACT:
To find the relationship between specific television-viewing habits and both sleep habits and sleep disturbances in school children. Methods. The parents of 295 children in grades kindergarten through fourth grade in three public elementary schools completed two retrospective survey questionnaires, one assessing their children’s sleep behaviours and the other examining television-viewing habits of both the child and the family. Sleep domains assessed included bedtime resistance, sleep onset delay, sleep duration, anxiety around sleep, parasomnias, night waking, and daytime sleepiness. Teachers from all three schools also completed daytime sleepiness questionnaires (N =202) for the sample.
