A new study shows a majority of kids are not getting enough sleep and bedtime routines may be to blame.
University of Chicago researchers polled parents about their children's bedtime behaviors.
34% of parents say evening activities, including homework, push back their child's bedtime.
92%of parents polled say they've set up one or more sleep-related rules, but only 62% say they enforce them.
Doctor Jyoti Krishna did not take part in the study but treats pediatric sleep disorders at Cleveland clinic.
She says parents can start establishing better bedtimes by making sleep a priority.
Krishna explains, "the parents are quite aware that sleep is an issue. Sleep is important, yet their kids aren't getting enough sleep."
"Things are going to be different every day and life gets in the way, but I think if you don't set priorities and bedtime being one of them, you're going to lose out on sleep in the end," continues Krishna.
The poll numbers for this study can be found at the national sleep foundation's website.
