Nap time

Summer is here.  That means fun, fun, fun.  Just don’t forget to schedule nap time for your toddler.  A study by the University of Colorado Boulder shows the importance of a daytime nap.

Children, who missed a day time nap showed less positive emotional responses, were less likely to demonstrate they didn’t understand, and were less likely to ask for help.  A sleepy toddler will therefore be less socially engaged, less likely to cope with frustration leading to tantrums, and were less positive.

Take a siesta.  You and your child will be ready for more fun!
