Teens Need More Sleep Than You Think
Teen sleep deprivation can affect a teen's brain development. "In adolescence, the brain is still developing, and sleep is essential to healthy brain development.

This part of the brain is especially sensitive to the effects of sleep deprivation." #sleeptipsforteens
Melatonin Sleep Aids - Tips To Produce It Naturally
You are probably not going to get your teenager to stay away from smart phones, computers, or tablets in the evening, all of which emit blue light and shut down melatonin production. Wearing blue light blocking glasses blocks the blue light from these screens so you can produce melatonin. #sleeptipsforteens

To produce white light, these electronic devices must emit light at short wavelengths, which makes them potential sources for suppressing or delaying the onset of melatonin in the evening, reducing sleep duration and disrupting sleep. This is particularly worrisome in populations such as young adults and adolescents, who already tend to be night owls."
