In your opinion, at what age/maturity level does a child need to be before the mom can take a nap while the kid is awake?

Hmmm... I'm not sure. DS is only 6, I can say without a doubt, I wouldn't be comfortable doing that any time soon.

My youngest is 4 and I would not take a nap if him awake because he is a terror! If I was just home with my 7 year old then I would absolutely take a nap because he is very responsible and can entertain himself.

It all depends on the child. Most of mine were around 4.

Wow my six year old is very capable of being on her own if I want a nap. But she is mature and responsible. She also baths herself, gets herself dressed, can make herself a sandwich.
