Sleep Requirements For Children
3 years 12-12.5 hours
4 years 11.5-12 hours
5 years 11 hours
Parents should try to limit motion sleep, such as naps in a car. Parents should try to have a regular bedtime with a routine, such as a bedtime story.
CHILDREN WHO ARE READ TO ON A REGULAR BASIS SHOW MORE INTEREST IN BOOKS, HAVE A HIGHER VOCABULARY AND LEARN TO READ MORE EASILY........AND JUST 20 MINUTES A DAY IS ALL IT TAKES. BEDTIME STORIES ARE GREAT FOR FORMING THAT DAILY ROUTINE.
