Is Nap Time Beneficial To Kindergarten Children
Need a suggested time my son need to go to sleep. He wakes up at 630 am and will be starting kindergarten gets out at 2pm. They don't take naps?
Outgrowing naps: Some kindergartens phase out nap time. If your son has to be up at 6:30am, I would suggest a bedtime around 7:30-8pm. However, if your son is used to taking an afternoon nap, he may end up falling asleep in the car ride home from kindergarten. Depending how long he sleeps then, this may push his bedtime to a later hour. ...Read more
She is breaking out in hives & has fainted 26 times in 1week. 6 ER visits. 1 child @ home and 1 in kindergarten class has fainted. Any ideas?
Raped in kindergarten, made me bleed in both anus and vagina. Happened several times. Hurt to go to the bathroom. Why would it bleed? Is this bad?
I am so sorry.: What a sad thing to hear that you were sexually assaulted as a young child! I am not surprised that you had bleeding. Your tissues as a five-year-old were certainly not ready for any sort of penetration. Even consenting adults in loving relationships often use lubricants for greater comfort during sex. I am assuming things are back to normal, and i hope you have sought counseling to help you. ...Read more
I have a severe antisocial personality. Ive been mute, shy and too frozen to even move my leg for PE lessons from kindergarten till grad. I even at times feel shy from my mom. I dunno how to speak nor act. But i find clever ways to get around. Idea ?

Treatment may include changing or increasing your current medications, and therapy depending upon your specific issues. Good luck! ...Read more
Varies: The need for naps varies considerably across children, along with the overall trend of decreasing need over time. Total sleep over the day is the key. Trouble is those who fight taking naps divide broadly into those who really need one and those who don't. In general, toddlers benefit from an afternoon nap; if it's a struggle, look at ways of making it more routine and less of a battle. ...Read more
What is considered the maximum amount of minutes for a nap to be beneficial to your health (life)?
It depends: It depends upon how much you are sleeping at night. Some people benefit from "power naps" for about 15-20 minutes, others need longer nap times.

My 6.5 months old is switching naps. If he takes 2 bed time is smooth. Bedtime rough when he needs 3
Common at this age: A lot of babies will transition gradually from 3 naps to 2 right about your baby's age. The best advice i can give you is to try to gently encourage your baby to move to 2 naps on all but the toughest days. Try to fight through that end of the day crankiness/tiredness: the sooner he/she gets used to that, the faster the transition will be complete, and the easier bedtime will be. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
