TV affects childrens' sleeping habits

(CBS) -- If your child has trouble sleeping, TV may be to blame.

A new study in the journal Pediatrics finds sleep problems are more common in 3 to 5-year-olds who watch television after 7:00pm.

Shows with violence were also linked to sleeping difficulties but watching non-violent TV during the day didn't seem to have a negative impact.
