If you’re giving a gift that doesn’t come in a box, there’s still a way to wrap it without it looking like a crumpled mess. Gift bags at the store can be way overpriced, and let’s be real– kids love ripping wrapping paper! It’s part of the holiday cheer. Here, Zulily Lifestyle Editor Amy Goodman visited the Meredith Viera show to teach us how to wrap oddly shaped gifts this holiday season. It’s much easier than you think, and fun too!

Getting the kiddos to bed is. a. struggle #forreal. But studies show that kids that have an earlier bedtime, (between 6 to 9 p.m.) sleep longer, are healthier, and have stronger cognitive skills compared to children that fall asleep later in the evening.

Studies found that children who sleep later in the evening — 10 p.m. or later — took longer to fall asleep, and were more likely to wake up in the middle of the night. Additionally, the well-rested munchkins don’t just sleep better: they were able to function to a greater degree at school. A study monitored 7 to 11 year-old students, and their sleep cycle. The students who were put to bed an hour earlier for five nights were rated by their teachers (who were unaware of the children’s bedtime) as being less irritable and impulsive than usual.

In another study, researchers reported that 18-month-olds who went to bed before 10 p.m. were at a lower risk for motor, language, and social deficits compared with kids who went to bed later.

So other than better rest and behavior in school, what other health factors can come into play? Well, kids with late bedtimes are more likely to be overweight. One theory is that sleep creates changes to the hormones leptin and ghrelin, which regulate appetite and hunger.

While researchers point out that there is no standardized bedtime for children, they recommend that you try to incorporate an earlier sleep schedule by getting the children ready for bed 20 minutes to an hour earlier. Monitor their behavior the next day, and adjust accordingly.

Finding out there’s something wrong with your newborn child is terrifying. Unfortunately, this was the case for late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel. On Monday night’s opening monolog, Kimmel shared a deeply personal story about his infant son. “Before I go into it, I want you to know it has a happy ending,” started Kimmel’s tearful speech.

Jimmy Kimmel went on to tell his audience that last week his wife gave birth to their second child, William– Billy for short. Everything seemed normal at first until a nurse discovered that Billy had a heart murmur and noticed his skin was a bit purple. A cardiac specialist rushed in and discovered that he had a dangerous heart condition and needed surgery immediately.

They took Billy in an ambulance from Cedars-Sinai to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where he had open heart surgery. “It was the longest three hours of my life,” Jimmy Kimmel tearfully told the audience. But the procedure went well, and six days later, they were able to take Billy home.

Kimmel began asking for better health care for our children. “Before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you would never be able to get health insurance because you had a preexisting condition,” he stated. “You were born with a preexisting condition, and if your parents didn’t have medical insurance, you might not even live long enough to get denied because of a preexisting condition.”

Jimmy Kimmel says no matter what your political views are, “we need to take care of each other… No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life. It just shouldn’t happen.”

Be sure to watch Jimmy’s emotional speech below.
