I Don’t Want To Take A Nap

I have been told that it’s a well-known fact that children need to take a nap for their health.

“The impact of night sleep on children’s development and health is increasingly documented, but to date there is not sufficient evidence to indicate the value of prolonging napping, whether at home or in childcare contexts, once sleep has consolidated into night,” write the researchers.

The idea that naps are good for two-year-olds is not supported by science. However there is some incomplete evidence that napping may negatively affect overall sleep quality.
