Each day I set a certain time of the day to have QUIET TIME. Yes I have learned that certain children need naps and others need quiet time.
I have one child that HAS TO HAVE IT...not by her choice, but by my choice. She was that baby that got over-stimulated and would just need a few minutes in her play pen to calm down & she was just fine after that. Well still to this day, this SAME child will get over-stimulated from having to think to much or playing too long or WHATEVER...but if she doesn't get quiet ALONE time, she pokes others, makes crazy silly noises & such, ends up fighting with someone. So each day we have quiet/nap time. AND I LOVE IT!
