My kids really dislike when I tell them that it is nap time. They start yelling NO! And "I'm not tired" stuff like that. Usually I'm driving when it's nap time so they'd rather play and fight in the truck than take a nap. So I started doing something different and this whole week it has worked. Yay! I tell them that it's just rest time. I don't want them to go to sleep but I would like them to relax. I ask for there toys or whatever they might have in their hands and tell them to look out there windows and just rest. But I am sure to tell them they don't have to go to sleep. Within 5 minutes, they are usually out and it makes my afternoons a lot less stressful when they have there naps. Success!!
