At what age did your kids stop taking naps? Toddler is 3 and now at the point where he will not go down for a nap easily and sometimes not take one at all, but if he doesn't he still gets really grumpy and tired early. So I either resort to threats to get him to nap or deal with him being a monster the rest of the day. So do I just not try to get him to nap and hope he gets used to it and starts behaving better, or keep forcing it? I really enjoy that 2 hours when he does nap, it helps a lot.
