Violent videos may be causing nightmares for pre-school aged children.
Seattle researchers studied over 500 children between the ages of three and five.
They found children who watched age-appropriate movies and TV shows had significantly lower odds of sleep problems.
Researchers think choosing age-appropriate content for children may help treat existing sleep problems and be a useful preventative measure.
Complete findings for this study are in the journal "Pediatrics."
Honey and Cough
A spoonful of honey might be the best thing to alleviate your child's night time cold.
Researchers focused on 300 children all diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection.
The kids were randomly given either a type of honey or a placebo right before bed.
While all the kids showed improvement in their sleep and severity of their coughs.
Those who had a teaspoon or two full of honey - fared much better than those that had the placebo.
