My wonderful well behaved 2 almost 3 year old is giving me some issues. ALWAYS at naptime and bedtime. She is well behaved all day and when it's time for the diaper and bed she runs away, kicks (not to hurt, she thinks it's a game) shakes her whole body so I can't get the diaper or pj pants on her. WE DO NOT SPANK. Serves no purpose. However, she thinks time outs are funny, any other time of day it's the end of the world if she gets one, so I know they work. And if you say, you don't want a time out do you she says yes I do. Any other creative idea, besides hitting her? I must say the thought has crossed my mind when she has gotten to my last nerve but I could never go through with it.

make nap time a special time. After she changes allow her to pick out a book, lye in bed with your daughter and read to her. Let her know after the story she needs to stay in bed, when she wakes up from nap time you will do something special with her. Color, play a game etc. This works for me to get my four year old twins to nap. I actually fall asleep with them during nap time.
