That Explains The Sleeping Teen Syndrome

Yet another aha!

According to recently published research by the American Medical Association, studies show that kids' activity level drops after age nine. Seriously drops from, on average three hours a day to about a half hour (on weekends).

According to the NYTimes, "The findings, which measured everything from moderate walking to vigorous athletic pursuits, show clearly that even the most energetic young children experience a precipitous drop in physical activity as they reach puberty."

I guess they just can't help it.
