According to Carter these devices hinders the sleep of the children by creating a negative influence. The researches explained on this research conducted that due to this their circadian rhythm is affected. This rhythm is an internal biologically fixed clock. The screening till late affects the body temperature and release of hormone. Melatonin is an hormone which induces laziness and it controls our time of waking up or sleeping off process. The screening detains the melatonin release, disturbs the cycle and makes sleep harder to the children.
