MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new study has found that a third of teens actually sleep with their smartphones in their beds – and parents aren’t that much better.

The study, from Common Sense Media, found that 62% of parents keep their phones in reach of their bed. Twelve percent reported sleeping with their phones.

Also, while 39% of teens say they have their phones within reach of bed, an additional 29% of teens actually have the phone in bed with them, the study found.

Many teens and parents are having their sleep interrupted by notifications, too.
