A new study published in the journal Pediatrics has found that persistent, loud snoring in young children is associated with hyperactivity, depression and inattention. Researchers studied 249 pre-school aged children, and surveyed their parents about the kids' sleep and behaviors. They discovered that kids who snored loudly at least twice a week at ages 2 and 3 had more behavioral problems than those who did not snore, or those who snored at 2 or 3 but not at both ages. Researchers found a link between snoring and lower socioeconomic status as well as with a lack of or shorter duration of breast feeding.
