Time in most of the United States will revert to standard time at 2 a.m. Sunday, giving people without young children an extra hour of sleep.

Parents with young children, especially those little darlings that do not like to sleep, will not reap any benefit from the extra hour added to Nov. 2, 2014. Attempts to convince children that Americans have been enjoying that extra hour of sleep since 1918, and you should also be able to, will probably prove futile. Bribing them to be quiet in exchange for leftover Halloween candy may be effective.

Parents in Hawaii and most of Arizona will go about life normally, because those states do not participate in daylight savings time. The Navajo Nation in Arizona does honor daylight savings time, and will, therefore, have cranky mothers and fathers.

For many, the joy of the car clock once again being correct may outweigh the tiny trouble with their tots.
