She needs to run and play a lot! Some kids need more exercise than others, they have high energy levels. Take her outside and have her run until she is exhausted. If you can buy a small exercise trampoline for her to jump on inside the house, it's a great exercise and doesn't take up tons of space. But start slowing down after dinner and until bed time so she isn't wound up. Also, read to her til she falls asleep. If she learns to love reading you can let her do that in her bed when she is a bit older. Cut her naps down to less and less time, wake her up if you need to but a 3 hour nap isn't good for either of you. You can't function without sleep, and if you are like me you are probably making up for it during her naps. Also her naps should never start after 1:00 in the afternoon. If they do she won't be tired by bed time. Good luck!!!
