Following the onset of the pandemic, sleep habits and screen time changed dramatically, with teens going to bed and waking up later, and younger children’s bedtime routines being significantly disrupted. Children and Screens held the #AskTheExperts webinar “Sleep and Screens During COVID-19” on Wednesday, August 12th, 2020 at 12:00pm ET. Moderated by Dr. Charles Czeisler, renowned sleep researcher and physician at Harvard Medical School, an interdisciplinary panel of sleep researchers, clinicians and parenting experts offered insights on the current research on sleep and screens with practical science-based advice to foster health, development, and well-being for families.
