Shhhhh....... It's nap time 😴... and our children need to sleep. At ABC.... all our children 👶 get to take a good deserved nap 😴... infants 👶 , toddlers, preschoolers and yes! our 5 years olds too 😀😅 are used to taking a good nap ... 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm .... We are proud to say our pre-k kids take a nap at ABC 👍 ..... which does not happen at very many preschools around 😕. Naps are so very important..... anda 20 minute rest time cannot equate a good afternoon nap 😴....... Their growing bodies need it to calm their minds. 😵😴.... to recharge and replenish their energy , so they are balanced for the rest of the day. Thank you 😊 Miss Shanna.... so comfortably rocking our little girl to sleep while gently patting her two angels besides. A good reading about sleep and children is attached here , similar to what we often request our parents to practice too 😊😊.... ARTICLE: Could my toddler be overtired? Judith Owens pediatric sleep expert writes: When you feel you're suddenly the parent of a whirling dervish — or Superman, who can get by without any sleep at all — you probably have an overtired toddler on your hands. That's right: Even though he fights it like the dickens, he's really in need of a serious nap. He's probably physically tired from exerting himself all day (running around the playground, clambering up and down the stairs, bouncing in his crib), intellectually excited by all he's learning, and emotionally tense about the things he doesn't quite understand. advertisement | page continues below As a result, he doesn't know which way is up. He can't figure out how to unwind enough to either rest or drift off to sleep. That means it's up to you to help him put it together. Remember: Sleep habits are a mixture of nature (biology) and nurture (learning and environment). Here are some questions to ask yourself about your tuckered-out toddler: When does he nap? If your child's taking a late-afternoon nap — even a short one that lasts only 20 minutes — he might be fooled into feeling alert way past bedtime. Try to move his nap time earlier, if possible. Right after lunch, around 12:30, is a common sleepy time for toddlers. Is he between nap stages? Kids often hit an overtired wall at around 18 months (when two naps are too many and one isn't enough) and again at 2 1/2 (when one nap is too many, but no nap is asking for trouble). If he's hitting this wall, there's not a lot you'll be able to do. Consider this another notch in your parental belt of "stages." Are you misreading his signs? Your toddler might continue to be very active — hyperactive, even — when in fact he's overdue for a nap. If he starts getting clumsy performing routine tasks, such as climbing out of his booster seat or carrying a toy while walking, then it's probably time for a story and rest. Has his sleep routine fallen by the wayside? Toddlers can surprise us with their new abilities, and it's tempting to keep them up until our bedtimes just to have more time with them. But sticking with a (reasonable) schedule can help kids know when to wind down and ensures that they get the sleep they need. An evening bedtime of 7:30 is a good place to start. Most toddlers need about 12 to 14 hours of sleep in every 24-hour period Is your toddler focused on the older people around him? Children who are tuned in to their older siblings and parents may have a harder time going to bed. After all, they don't see you turning out the light at 8 p.m.! It might be wise to start winding down all activity in your home before your toddler's bedtime. Instruct everyone to act "boring" — it's less painful to leave a group of people silently reading books than an active bunch playing games or laughing together, after all. Is quiet time part of his day? Even if he's transitioning toward giving up a nap altogether, there are ways for your toddler to relax. Right now, that rest time will probably involve you — he's way too busy to sit down without prompting to turn pages of a book by himself. Have him snuggle up with you to read, draw, or engage in some other quiet activity.

Micromanaging Your Children? You are a parent of the new millennium -- caring, involved, and determined to help your child succeed. But there are times when your involvement could do more harm than good. "Micromanagement goes against natural development," says clinical psychologist and author Marc Nemiroff, PhD. "It takes away the child's experience and [impedes] his learning how to handle himself in the world. Part of the job of the parent is not to do everything for the child, but to help him do things more and more independently." Gail Tanner, a third grade math teacher in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., agrees. "Kids don't develop the skills they need to weather the rough spots in life if their parents never let them practice those skills." With that in mind, WebMD asked child development and parenting experts to identify 10 signs you may be micromanaging your child. 1. You constantly interfere during play dates. "One of the telltale signs of micromanagement," Nemiroff tells WebMD, "is during a play date when the parent steps in immediately" at the first sign of conflict. "The danger is the child doesn't learn to be on his own in the world, to manage the conflicts that may arise." As long as safety isn't an issue, parents should wait a few minutes before stepping in, says Benjamin Siegel, MD, a professor of pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine. "You have to intervene if kids are getting hurt," he tells WebMD, "but oftentimes they work it out themselves." If you do have to step in, try to be an arbitrator rather than coming up with a solution for the children. 2. You obsess over what your child eats. Many parents are overly concerned about what their children eat, Nemiroff says. "If a child is truly not eating enough and losing weight, that's worth discussing with your pediatrician. But when you have a picky eater [who gets] sufficient protein, does it really matter?" Arguing over food can set up an unhealthy power struggle, says Ruth A. Peters, PhD, a clinical psychologist and author of the parenting manual, Laying Down the Law. Peters cautions parents against becoming "control freaks" at meal time. "If the kid wants last night's pizza for breakfast, that's OK. If the kid won't try a new food, so what? It's OK to go along with the kid's quirks." Clothing and Homework 3. You clash with your child over clothing. Peters says parents should think about what's important before arguing over clothes. "What's important is safety, academics, and values," she tells WebMD. "Pretty much anything short of that, you can begin to let go." She recommends allowing children to "dress to fit in at their school, even if you think it's dumb-looking. See it from their point of view, not always from your point of view." 4. You interfere with your child's homework. Nemiroff says micromanaging homework time may be appropriate for children with certain learning disabilities, but not for the average student. "By second or third grade in a non-LD [learning disabled] child, the parent should have very little to do with homework, unless the child says, 'Can you help me understand this problem?' Once you clarify, you back away." Parents who provide too much help with homework don't give their children a chance to figure things out themselves, he says. Tanner, the third grade teacher, recalls an intelligent student who was "not very confident in his ability to do things well. It didn't take long to figure out why. His mom, a doctor, would do his projects for him 'because he didn't do them right.' And he was more than happy to let her." Tanner stresses that it's fine to help when a child asks, but "if more than one teacher has hinted that you may be doing too much, then it's probably time to listen." School and Sports 5. You argue with your child's teacher over grades. "Grades are between the kid and the teacher," says Siegel, the pediatrician. Parents should "ask what their children are learning, show interest, praise them for their accomplishments, but don't try to take over the teacher's role." Tanner says parents who intervene every time their child brings home something less than an "A" create several problems: The child develops the unrealistic idea that he is always entitled to an "A." The child never learns to advocate for himself. The child believes his parents will always fix everything that goes wrong. "The goal of getting an 'A' is not nearly as important as developing the skills to be independent, capable, thinking adults," Tanner tells WebMD. "Children need to be allowed to make mistakes and learn from them. They need to struggle through difficult tasks and learn to persevere." 6. You argue with your child's coach over plays. "Attending soccer games is very important," Nemiroff says. "After every game, say you're proud. But that's it. Be encouraging without getting worked up over the details of the game." He says you've crossed the line "when you ask the coach, 'How much did you play my child and for how long?'" 7. You regularly call your child during school. All our experts agree that calling your kids or text-messaging them at school is inappropriate. "That's the parent inserting himself in the child's day and it is unnecessary," Nemiroff says. If you need to communicate with your child during the day, agree on a predetermined check-in time -- preferably after school lets out. 8. You demand a "play by play" of your child's day. There's a difference between asking your child about his or her day and "becoming the district attorney," Nemiroff says. Unless you suspect drugs or another serious problem, there's no need to press a child for every detail of every hour of the day. Privacy and Pressure 10. You have already picked a college for your toddler. Nemiroff says he has seen parents choose a preschool based on the college they hope their child will attend 15 years in the future. "How can you possibly know where the child will belong, what type of academic personality he will have?" He recommends parents focus on the present and choose a preschool "that is appropriate for the child's needs now." Siegel says parents who feel "intense pressure to have kids come out perfect and get the right grades and get into the right college" may be bringing home the workplace culture. He says the goal of child rearing should not be to create "a commodity or product to be marketed to colleges," but to bring up kids who are sensitive, creative, and confident.

Congratulations! To our 2016 alumni 'boy' Christian .... 👌Awarded 'Student of the month' at Hage Elementary School 👍👌 We recently re-filled ourselves with joy when he visited us and danced around his class... hugged Ms. Aida and asked to touch his class books 📚, shelves etc. You hear him ... talking about homework etc. ... eyeing his juniors when he came in last week to visit us..... Mom speaking easily to Ms Aida about his developments as if it were just yesterday. The point here is ... NOT about what he did or did not do. But the fact that he accomplished with pure enthusiasm ... the way he knows it. By being himself. And remain himself ... humble and curious about learning new while reconnecting and smiling at his past. 🤗😊 We rejoiced seeing him again and felt 'achieved' when we saw: -he has the confidence of being himself. -And enjoying being the way he wanted to be. 'To understand his natural strengths and nature and nourishing him using those strengths... is what we do the best at ABC!' ...🤜🤛And let our children take on the world 🌎 fearlessly and by believing in themselves when they move forward to elementary schools if what we prepare them for. 👍🤜🤛

Why Changing your child's childcare affects your child more negatively compared to frequently change in childcare teacher. A new study from UNC’s Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute (FPG) reveals that disruptions / frequently changing child care negatively affect children’s social development as early as age 4. However, the study also shows that the effects of child care instability are not unduly large—and some types of instability appear to have no negative impact on children. “Our findings showed that when young children moved between child care settings, these transitions negatively affected their social adjustment,” said FPG investigator Mary Bratsch-Hines. “But when children had a history of changing caregivers within the same setting, we found no significant effects.” Bratsch-Hines explained many experts believe forming stable and secure early relationships with parents and caregivers serves as a working model for children as they form social connections later. “It follows that higher levels of instability and disruption in establishing strong relationships with caregivers during children’s earliest years could lead to difficulties forming trusting relationships down the road,” said Bratsch-Hines. “However, we have to recognize that changing child care settings and providers may be inevitable for a majority of families.” Bratsch-Hines said that ups and downs in income, availability of transportation, secure employment, and other factors can result in children moving into and out of different child care settings. But understanding the effects of such transitions on children has remained elusive. As a result, Bratsch-Hines and her team decided to take a comprehensive look at the impact of child care instability by capitalizing on FPG’s long-running Family Life Project. She and her colleagues examined the experiences of nearly 1,300 young children living in high-poverty rural areas, focusing on changes in child care both within and across settings—an approach few prior studies had attempted. “In our study, we also included infants and toddlers even if they were enrolled intermittently in child care that their parents did not provide,” said Bratsch-Hines. “Previous studies have included only those children who continuously received child care from people other than their parents.” By rigorously accounting for numerous child, family, and child care characteristics, the FPG team determined that a history of changes in child care across settings negatively impacted children’s lives. “Not unexpectedly, children who experienced more changes in child care settings received lower ratings from their pre-kindergarten teachers on social adjustment,” said Bratsch-Hines. “This may be because changing child care locations meant children had to adjust to new physical environments in terms of the buildings, playgrounds, and toys—as well as new routines—in addition to disruptions in relationships with peers, primary caregivers, and other adults.” According to Bratsch-Hines, although there was a clear negative impact on social adjustment for children who experienced child care instability across settings, the effect was small. Furthermore, her team found no evidence that infants and toddlers who only experienced changes in providers within settings later had difficulty with social adjustment in pre-kindergarten. “This could be good news for parents who worry about high teacher turnover and other changes in staff at their chosen child care setting,” she said. Nonetheless, Bratsch-Hines said the practical implications of her team’s findings suggest that programs can make additional efforts to integrate children—regardless of their child care history—into their care. “In addition, child care subsidies could be changed to help parents access stable child care,” she explained. “With subsidies often tied to parental employment, unstable employment can lead to unstable child care.” Bratsch-Hines also called for more research in order to better understand the role of child care instability—and other factors—on child development. “It may be that child care instability is another indicator of chaos in families’ lives,” she said. “We want to be able to best prepare children for the challenges of schooling, and we have to understand all the factors that stand in their way.” Contact Mary Bratsch-Hines, Investigator UNC’s Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute bratsch@email.unc.edu 919-962-7322 read the abstract and/or full article FPG grants permission to publish this story in whole or in part, as well as to use the above photograph in conjunction with this story.
