Tips for Parents
So, as your student establishes her sleep patterns at school, jumping in bed for a brief nap could be useful.
To get the most out of napping, the National Sleep Foundation offers the following tips:
Getting good, consistent sleep at school is important for all students, as being overtired can cause moodiness, a lack of energy, stress, anger and a higher susceptibility to illness. Plus, it can result in difficulty retaining new information and a lack of concentration, two very essential skills that will help your student succeed academically. If tossing a nap into the mix sometimes helps, it could be okay.
