my kids did. They actually used to come home from 1st grade and fall asleep for 1 hour (age 6) then go to bed at 7pm . I think it depends on the child and how active they are.
Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.
you are lucky she has napped this long. my 4yo naps maybe once a week. many give it up well before then
Depends but typically 5 yr olds do not need a nap. My dd stopped napping at 2 yrs old. We had an hour in afternoon where she had "quiet time" if she fell asleep fine, if not she had to do a quiet activity during that time. Even schools for most part have stopped with nap time for preschoolers and kindergarteners.
I don't think so. I am 42 and still like a nap! LOL
Most kids are done napping by 5. We had quiet time instead. They had to read and then watch a movie while laying quietly.
My kids stopped napping around age 3, I would not expect a 5 year old to nap still.
My daughter takes them sometimes, but not everyday
