DD just turned four on Monday. Naps have been hit or miss for the past few months, but just this week has been horrible.
DF insists that she does need a nap, and he's home with her during the day, so she has been getting a nap. (He wants to nap, so they both nap.) Often, she'll stay in her room and not sleep, but he tries to make her stay in there until she falls asleep. I'm more lenient and will let her get up after an hour or so of "quiet time". The big problem is that I am home with her at night, and she's been up til 11 (Monday) and 9:30 (last night) and then woke up at 6 this morning. This is telling ME that she does not need a nap, because it is interfering with her nighttime sleeping patterns. Normally she sleeps for ten hours, no problem.
My questions, really, are: are four year olds ever ready to give up the nap, and how to I explain this to DF?
