3 year old not sleeping anymore

just a question everyone. My son was a 12 hour sleeper and a 2 hour napper. Now a 1 hour nap 3 times a week and has a hard time falling asleep and up at least times a night. He turns 3 in early May. Any suggestions?
I feel like I have a new born again. He does not cry when he wakes but when we put him in his bed and leave him he cries so I often end up sleeping in his room right now as he will wake my daughter then the whole family is up. Between nap and night it is taking us a total of 3 hours to get the kid to sleep. I often give up on the nap so that at night he is better but still taking a solid 1.5 hours to get him to sleep. We have tried laying with him. The bring him back over and over (game to him). Hard to not lose your patience when it is 9 at night and he has not slept all day! I am not getting any d c break on the days my hub works late and then with him til almost 830 9 and he is fighting his sleep. When I can we spend 2 hours outside and we do the active wii games, jump games too. The case worker wants to focus on other issues but has given like the tip the walk back to bed over and over even if it takes 2 hours and suggests to do this for 6 months. Do you think 3 year old gets growing pains?
