When we are young we hate it, when we are old we want it. Yes nap time. When we get older our batteries run out faster and we need to recharge more often. Nap time should be essential as we age to keep us healthy and energized. Young kids are full of energy why do they need naps? They have enough energy to power to world. Then when they get old they can nap. They would much rather run around than sleep. So schools should offer a nap period, not meaning study hall.
