CLEVELAND, Ohio — Parents of teenagers worry about their kids and drugs, their kids and alcohol, their kids and sex. Now they can add one more thing to the list: texting.
Every day, pediatricians and sleep clinics treat kids for all kinds of problems brought on — or worsened — by hours of middle-of-the-night message sending.
What they’re seeing, they say, are more and more teens and tweens texting until 2 or 3 a.m., dragging themselves out of bed at 6, struggling through the school day, then falling into bed as soon as they get home. Often, they nap straight through dinner. That means they’re wide awake when they should be going to bed. Then they start texting again.
