Teens' Bonds with Parents Affect Their Sleep

Teens' Bonds with Parents Affect Their Sleep | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
A recent study suggests that social ties, such as relationships with friends and parents, may play a bigger role than biology in influencing teen sleep.

Catlin Cook's curator insight, April 23, 2017 11:10 PM
1. Decreasing from 9.2 hours of sleep at age 12 to 7.8 at age 15
2. Social ties with parents is one of the strongest predictors 
3. Those whose parents have split tend to have more sleep disruptions and less sleep 
4. Teen friends also influence the amount of sleep they get each night

There is bias in this article because it is only one study and at the end it says it lacks some information. 

I think this article was very interesting. I never knew that parents being together or parents who set bedtimes influenced the amount of sleep their children get. I also did not know that those who want to do well in school and are social get less sleep too. I believe this article was written to inform readers.

What does compassion sound like?

What does compassion sound like? | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

"Good to see you. I'm sorry. It sounds like you've had a tough, tough, week." Spoken by a doctor to a cancer patient, that statement is an example of compassionate behavior observed by a University of Rochester Medical Center team in a new study published by the journal Health Expectations.


Rochester researchers believe they are the first to systematically pinpoint and catalogue compassionate words and actions in doctor-patient conversations. By breaking down the dialogue and studying the context, scientists hope to create a behavioral taxonomy that will guide medical training and education.

 

"In health care, we believe in being compassionate but the reality is that many of us have a preference for technical and biomedical issues over establishing emotional ties," said senior investigator Ronald Epstein, M.D., professor of Family Medicine, Psychiatry, Oncology, and Nursing and director of the UR Center for Communication and Disparities Research.

Claudia M. Reder's curator insight, January 1, 2014 12:10 PM

Developing a taxonomy is useful, but will it transfer to true compassion between doctor and patient?

Barbara Kerr's curator insight, January 2, 2014 1:12 PM

"In contrast to empathy -- compassion involves a deeper and more active imagination of the patient's condition."  This article describes a valuable study about compassion in healthcare.

Don't Blame Social Media if Your Teen Is Unsocial. It's Your Fault

Don't Blame Social Media if Your Teen Is Unsocial. It's Your Fault | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
If kids can’t socialize, who should parents blame? Simple: They should blame themselves. Teenagers would love to socialize face-to-face with their friends. But adult society won’t let them.
Lon Woodbury's insight:

I usually disagree with "blame the parents" thinking, but in this case in an unintended way on the part of parents and soceity in general, the writer has a point. -Lon

Prosocial Media Linked With Empathy Across Cultures - Association for Psychological Science

Prosocial Media Linked With Empathy Across Cultures - Association for Psychological Science | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

Prosocial media and video games appear to have a positive influence on behavior regardless of culture, according to a new cross-cultural study led by researchers at Iowa State University.

 

Lead author Sara Prot and colleagues surveyed thousands of adolescents and young adults in Australia, China, Croatia, Germany, Japan, Romania, and the United States for the study, measuring their media exposure and assessing their levels of empathy and helpfulness...

 

Similar to the first study, a second study showed that behavior was influenced by the type of games children played. Over time, students who played violent games became less likely to show empathy and behave in helpful ways, whereas those who played prosocial games became more empathetic and helpful.
