Parenting with kindness but firmness is a great strategy to get your toddler to sleep. Sometime after two years of age (or earlier) children will try to miss their naps. Most children need to nap until the age or 4 or 5 (see our Sleep Tips). Stay consistent with their nap schedule and persevere with this. Researchers have found that lack of sleep in children pre-disposes them to health risks such as obesity and mood disorders. Some tired children were even misdiagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder!
