The link didn't work for me either.
That said, given the line "mothers-who-sleep-can-be charged" sets me off. Personally, I'd be in trouble, lol. I'm a napper, and have been my whole life. Should I have not had any children?

Google search that phrase and you'll find an article.

Im glad I had a nice neighbour when I fell asleep and my daughter went out the front door. I was exhausted from work and just thought Id close my eyes for 5 min. My neighbour couldve been a b/#@! & calles health and welfare but she didnt. I meant to type called.

I would have been doomed since taking short naps was how I made it through their young years without completely losing my sanity or dying of exhaustion. My best naps were when they were watching a movie. But sleeping in the morning (routinely) while kids get up and get themselves ready for the day sounds more neglectful than taking a nap while they're occupied with something. I didn't sleep soundly when napping though, semi-conscious .. like when they were teens and I couldn't really sleep until they were safely in the house for the night.

Never a napper as I can always can find something to do. Exercise helps tremendously with being tired.
