Marriage problems predict sleep difficulties in young children
Date:5/10/2011

We know that marriage problems can have a negative effect on families, especially children. Now a new study of more than 350 families has found that marital instability when children are 9 months old may also affect youngsters' sleep, predicting sleep problems when children are 18 months old.

They followed more than 350 families starting when their babies were 9 months old and continuing over a nine-month period. The researchers chose to study adoptive families to rule out the possibility that any ties between parents' behavior and children's sleep were due to shared genes; previous studies into this issue have looked at families who were biologically related.

The researchers found that marital instability when the children were 9 months old predicted increases in children's sleep problems when they were 18 months old. This finding held true even after taking into consideration such factors as children's difficult temperaments, parents' anxiety levels, and birth order. But the researchers also found that the invers
