Trends: Parents worry about children's sleep

A survey by China Youth Daily found that 82.4 percent of parents worry their children are getting insufficient sleep. Nearly 63 percent of people ages 6 to 17 sleep less than eight hours per night, the survey showed. Excessive schoolwork and pressure from cram schools are deemed to be the two major causes of the lack of sleep, accounting for 61.1 percent and 54.5 percent respectively. Homework pressure has long had the biggest effect on children's sleep, while the use of electronic devices and the internet has exacerbated the situation. The survey covered 1,876 parents, 77 percent of whom live in the first and second-tier cities.
