Rest time is a very important time of the day for a child.

Rest time is a very important time of the day for a child. Even older children who no longer nap need quiet time, to process information from the day and rest their growing bodies. A child’s mind works two to three times as hard as ours does! Even my seven year old has quiet time when she is home from school. It helps break up the day. I work very hard to stick to the same routine. I even structure our activities around this time, which may seem excessive (and sometimes we run late). But, my children’s bodies and minds expect this time and are comfortably into this rhythm. And, this part of our day also gives me a much needed mental and emotional break and my own quiet time. – Jodi Healy
