PARENTING QUESTION!!!

What time does your 3 almost 4 year old fall asleep every night ? Do you still make them take a nap during the day ???! AND what time do they wake up in the morning (if you're a stay at home mom and they don't attend daycare )


I ONLY ASK....

Because a mother I know fights her 3 almost 4 year old (in January) every single day to take a nap during the day . Even if she does take a nap during the day (between 12 and 4pm) she wants her to fall asleep by 7 or 8 . THEN she gets pissed that she's up between the hours of 5-7am . I only have a 1 year old but I think this is highly unreasonable . It's like she wants her to sleep all day and all night with no day time stimulation to run out all her energy . What do you ladies think ????

My 4 and 6 year old are in bed by 8 pm. No naps. 6 year old is up at 7:30 am and the 4 year old is up by 9:30 am.

No naps, bed at 7 but awake times varied by kids so between 5 and 7.

If they napped by accident they'd be aske by 10 and wake up time was the same.

So being up between 5-7 is normal ?

she takes an hour nap at pre-school and if she doesnt nap at school then we put her in for an afternoon nap for an hour, she goes to be at 8-830pm and she wakes up by 630am since she has school by 730am.

 When my 5 yo was that age, she took naps every day from about 12 to 2 or 3.  She would go to bed about 8 and wake up at 7 in the morning.  Even though she's in kinder now, she still takes naps.  They have rest time after recess and she always falls asleep.  But my kids have all loved naps.  Some don't.

7.30. I don't like when they nap as it always threw off their routine.

For some children it can be. My youngest was up at 5 am like a clock no matter what time she went to bed, and it was like that fr birth. She's 5 and just now starting to sleep a little later.
