Not having a regular bedtime at the age of three years leads children to have lower test scores in reading, math, and spatial awareness years later, finds a new British study. Furthermore, researchers believe these negative effects could continue throughout their lifetime.
Involving more than 11,000 seven year olds, the study recorded the children’s bedtimes at ages three, five, and seven through surveys and home visits. Although irregular bedtimes at age five were not linked to lower test scores at age seven, both male and female children with irregular bedtimes at three years old consistently had lower test scores in all three categories.
