Wow, I've been having such a hard time with my 2 1/2 year old. She is in a Toddler bed. She will stay in her room one hour during "Quiet Time" but she won't nap. It's SO frustrating b/c @ 4pm she starts becoming over tired and has TONS of behavior problems with meltdown after meltdown. I've tried rewarding her with treats if she takes a nap, which she doesn't. The only way she will sleep is in the car and I'm not willing to drive her around every day. If she does nap, she goes to bed at 7pm and sleeps til 7am. Or at least she is in her room 12 hours, I don't think she falls asleep right away. If she doesn't nap we have to get her in bed no later than 6:30pm or she freaks out and screams before falling asleep. Any suggestions?
