Less Sleep Associated With Risky Behavior In Teens

The less sleep teens get, the higher the chance of risky behavior in teens, according to study.

This should be an eye opener for parents, sleep is super important for our teenagers. Teenagers who don't get enough sleep are more likely to engage in risky behaviors, including drunken driving, potentially unsafe sexual activity, aggressive behavior, and use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.

Teens who sleep less than six hours a night are also three times more likely to report considering suicide, compared to teens who sleep eight hours or more and that sounds scary when 70 percent of high school students get less than the recommended eight hours of sleep per night.
