Why do children hate afternoon naps

When at school or once an adult you wish you can get sometime to sleep more,in the morning,during the day or whichever time. However there are so many things to be done and everytime you peep at that To Do List you wish time can be 28 hours instead of 24.

However when it comes to children they got so much time to sleep but they hate sleeping. You got to keep fighting with them now and then as they try to get all types of excuses so as not to go to sleep. To them is like a punishment while to adults it remains a luxury. And then school opens and waking up in the morning becomes an issue. That is when sleep for them starts to get sweet.

I don't encourage my children to sleep in the afternoon. this way they sleep early at night and i can have some peace. They are too full of energy to sleep in the afternoon anyway.

I also noticed that if they don't sleep during the day they sleep continuously at night. Nowadays i also get them to sleep if they are sleepy but if not i just let them to continue playing
