We have no doubt about the importance of sleeping time for kids. But there is much more happening in kids while they sleep. The brain begins to process the information collected throughout the day. And separates the required information to store. Thus the long term memories are created. New neural connections happen when they are in deep sleep mode.
Well, not just the activities in the brain but the whole body. Most of the bone growth happens during the night. So when you see kids sleep they look cute, but they are also growing in front of your eyes. Kids do dream, often about the people whom they interacted during the day. So the emotional bonding builds up when they dream about the family members.
Sleep is not only an important activity but also holds a lot of information about your little munchkins’ growth. So, let them sleep a little longer from now onwards.
