  • When my step son was 3 and 4 he wouldn't nap anymroe, but there were some days when he was really cranky and you could tell he was tired. Those days we would just set him up in his bed with a movie and tell him he had to stay there until the movie was over. Sometimes he fell asleep, but more often than not he didn't. Either way, he was a happier kid when quiet time was over. It was a bit of a fight to start the habit, but once it was established he was ok with it.

  • My sons gave up their naps at age 2. I really didn't do a quiet time but we did quiet activities in the afternoon..........coloring and such.

  • I don't have a scheduled quiet time. My DD isn't exactly loud as it is. On non pre school days she plays with toys, may watch a movie, enjoy a computer game, paint or color, etc etc.

  • Mine stopped napping at 2 and he had quiet time everyday, especially at day care. He would sit on his cot and look at books or play with puzzles, sometimes he even fell asleep.

  • My daughter will be 4 in 1 month from now and she still takes naps but if she didn't I would make her have quiet time.
