My 3 year old is offered nap time. She is in daycare so they have quiet or nap time from 12-2. I would say four out of five times she takes the nap. If not she is one cranky Emma monster by the time 7pm rolls around.
My almost 3 does. Heck, my almost 5 year old does. But he has a neurological condition that his little brain is struggling to overcome and most days, he really needs the downtime for things to grow and develop. I actually think my almost 3 year old will stop taking naps here soon before her brother does.
I think its more of a "TO EACH HIS OWN" type of thing. If he's really whiny around the time he usually takes a nap or bedtime I would say yes. Only because I would feel bad when days my daughter skips her nap and she is just so upset because she's tired. And I'm a scheduled freak. My daughter is on a timed nap, her breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks are on schedule. But if he's doing good I wouldn't see why you have to keep giving him one. Good Luck :)
