If you have a teenager, what time do they go to bed at night and what time do they wake up?Â A lot of people are worried teens arenâ€™t getting enough sleep (especially on school days) and itâ€™s having an effect on their physical health, their mental health and their schoolwork. Marty talks about teen sleep with two leading experts: JUDITH OWENS, Director of Sleep Medicine at Childrenâ€™s National Medical Center in DC and JODI MINDELL, Professor of Psychology at Saint Joseph’s University and Associate Director of the Sleep Center at the Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Philadelphia.
