Tired teens during the day is the result of late night phone use when they should be in bed, according to a new study.
The poll created by Digital Awareness UK and the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference surveyed 2,750 11- to 18-year-olds asking how often they check their phone at night, BBC reported.
Almost half (45 percent) of the young people surveyed said that they check their mobile phones after they have gone to bed. One in 10 admitted to checking for notifications at least 10 times a night.
The study showed that out of the 45 percent who check their phones, 94 percent are on social media. Of this group, 75 percent also said they were listening to music and 57 percent are watching films.
A third (32 percent) of the young people say their parents are not aware that they check their phones after going to bed.
68 percent of those surveyed said that using their mobile device at night affects their school work, with 25 percent saying they feel tired during the day because of late night phone use.
