Well, I for one wouldn't work that hard for a nap- that's for sure. I'm of the mind that if they need to sleep they'll go to sleep.
This actually is a false statement. Before becoming a SAHM I worked with a research group doing research on pediatric sleep. There are several current studies that show that when children are overtired they will have a more difficult time going to sleep, instead "hyping" themselves up in an attempt to remain awake. There are several cases of children who have been labled ADHD, that once they've had their sleep issues addressed no longer exhibit signs of ADHD.
