To nap or not to nap that is the question. Some children need only a half hour nap and others require an hour rest. There are some children who after sleeping too long stay up longer at night. The thing to remember is that a regular routine should be followed. There is an article I read from Children's Hospital -St Louis where it was said that children who nap have longer attention spans and are less irritable than those who are not napping. Sometime after 3 years of age the naps should be replaced with a structured quiet time. This quiet time should be used for looking at books,working puzzles and play that is less active. This is not a time for TV, videos or games. All children need to learn to entertain themselves quietly and play alone. So the question to nap or not to nap-when your child's personality and behavior becomes consistent in the afternoon hours-usually between ages 3 and 5 years of age-it is an indication to forego the nap.
