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!
