I got this email question the other day from Lisa (I’m a little behind on getting through my emails):
Do any parents whose children wear their glasses full time allow their children to nap with them on? My nearsighted 3-year-old is still in a crib and takes naps some of the time. However, often he just likes to sing or talk to himself, and I am fine with that so long as he is resting and I get a little break. But he can only see clearly a few inches in front of his face, so I am wondering if he’d be less likely to fight this “rest time” if I just let him have his glasses (the backup pair of course, in case he breaks them, but he hasn’t broken a single pair in two years).
It got me wondering about which activities you leave your child’s glasses on for, and when you take them off. We haven’t had a poll in a while, so here goes (the question is if you leave them on for any of the listed activities):
Are there other times you take your child’s glasses off?
