When to give up naps
Fri, 09-13-2013 - 12:54pm

I'm just curious as to when everyone's kiddos stopped taking naps.  My youngest is 4 and it seems like he still needs that afternoon nap.  If he doesn't get it, he's a miserable wreck.  It's even causing issues with his afternoon pre-k class (his behavior and ability to listen).  However, on his off days from pre-k, if he naps, he's up forever at night.  It's like a crazy cycle we are in!  When did your children stop taking naps??
