There is one thing that I have always had a fairly steadfast opinion on, though. When a child is tired, let them sleep. Sometimes, bollocks to the routine. In my experience children sleep better in general when they are getting enough sleep. Sounds like a total oxymoron doesn’t it?! What I mean, though, is that I have never seen the sense in restricting naps in order to get kids to sleep better at night. And you know what I dislike more than not allowing a kid to sleep? Waking a sleeping child up. It rarely ends well and just seems so unfair! Personally if someone interrupted my nap, I’d be pretty pissed.
