Irregular sleep contributes to disparities in children's health, school, and behavioral outcomes. Roger is a product that gets children to bed on time by releasing pre-recorded bedtime stories at a specified time. Like a reverse alarm clock, Roger will sound for a 6-minute window before bed. Children start the stories by turning on the light during this window. The excitement of hearing a familiar voice coupled with the urgency to not miss a story gives children an incentive to get to bed at a predictable and reasonable time on their own.
