At age 4 i decided id follow the day nursery act in ontario. You can make a child rest in a bed for an hour no longer. Every day id put her in her room after lunch and make her rest. some times she would nap and others she wouldent. So a few months ago i noticed she went 3 weeks and had never fallen asleep at rest time so i started putting on a movie. she lays down on the couch and watches from beginning to end no pee breaks no toys resting. But lately ive started doing sports in the evening that have me leaving at her bed time and when i come home shes waiting up for me, and she still wakes at 630am. So shes a desaster area by noon the next day. I find even when shes a wreck it will take he longer then an hour to finally lay still and give her body a chance to fall asleep.... What do you do for nap at 5?
