Doctors say teens need to sleep like babies

September 6, 2010

Top health officials in Kansas say teenagers need to sleep like babies. Dr. Jason Eberhart-Phillips tells the Lawrence Journal World that high schoolers should be getting 9 or 10 hours of sleep.

Many surveys show only 15 percent get up to 8 and a half hours on school nights. Eberhart-Phillips suggests part of the solution could be to start classes later.
