When I was young, I had to go to bed at 9pm. I grumbled but it was healthy for me. Too many people stay up too late these days, including children and teens. There is too much to do and see on phones, computers and TV. It is thought that 20% of all road traffic collisions are caused by driver fatigue. People fall asleep after their mid day meal or else have naps during other parts of the day.
