Health Alert

(CBS) - Parents who yell at their teenagers may be making their children's behavior problems worse.  

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, and the University of Michigan studied nearly one thousand families in the United States and Europe.

They found that 13 year olds who receive harsh verbal discipline from their parents suffer more depression, and are more likely to misbehave at school.  

They're also more likely to lie to their parents, steal, and get into fights.

(CBS) - Sleep may be the best medicine for your brain. That's according to researchers at the University of Wisconsin who found sleep turns on the genes that help the brain repair itself.  Their study involved mice, but now they want to see how it applies to humans.
