Video game playing and sleep fragmentation

Playing video games before bed can disrupt sleep and often reduce available sleep time, leaving kids and many adults sleep deprived.

It could be the light from the screen suppressing melatonin secretion and/or more stimulation from playing more. Either way, limit your child's screen time.
