I have been having alot of trouble getting my 3yo to take a nap. And because I have a 2yo that still needs a nap I decided to just have him do quiet time in his room. I told him that he didnt have to take a nap but he needed to be quiet. He could read or play with his toys, except the loud ones. He was like "ok mommy" i leave the room and he throws a fit because he doesnt want to be in his room. Says hes scared, which is BS he always does that when he doesnt want to do something. I tell him that he needs to stop crying and play quietly in his room, I didnt think that would make other kids cry i thought it would make them happy that they get to play instead of taking a nap. but no not my kid he has to make a hissy about it. what do I do?

My 3 year old is phasing out naps. She never really went for the quiet time thing either, so when I need to get some stuff done and I can see she's getting a little worn out, I let her watch a movie. Sometime she falls asleep, sometimes she'll just watch some of it then go play by herself for awhile. I think since it is not called anything like "nap" or "quiet" time she doesn't protest it. Good luck.
