My daughter is 2 yrs and 1 month old she use to take u nap everyday at 2pm. For the past two day she hasnt then by 7pm she is nasty and crazy. I can't deal with it. If I don't keep her outside playing she will pass out after dinner around 6pm. But that is two late for her to a nap because she won't go to bed till 12am. What do I do or how do I make it so she isn't impossible??? HELP!

My daughter gave up her daytime naps around 2. Yes for a while they do get crabby until they get used to not having that nap.

Actually 2 pm is a bit late to be napping too. You might try to up her nap time or something akin to that. I put my kids to bed early. My son would not pass out until midnight himself.

You are not alone!! I'm in the same situation with my 3 year old son! HELP! Someone told me to try an earlier nap like at 12pm. Or a shorter nap. But sounds like she definitely needs her nap. Be persistent when its nap time. Put her in her bed and name all her friends that are napping too. Soft music helped with me and I also put up black out curtains to set a dimmer room.

Thanks I really want to thank all of you for taking the time to help. I really think she needs a nap because she is not just crabby she is unbearable and just plain nasty. She did take a nap today so I know she can't go without them for more then a few days. I m gonna try an earlier time though.
