HEALTH:  Teen chronic sleep loss story image
Young adults should have later school start times so they can catch up on sleep.
That is the finding of a study from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
   
It suggests delaying the start of the school day for middle and high school students until at least 8:30 am to reduce chronic sleep loss, which is linked to poor health.
   
The study suggests teens should get between 8 and a half to 9 and a half hours of sleep on school nights.

And also turn off the distractions in the bedroom, like TV's, computers and gaming devices.
