How often do you get naps out of your 4 year old? Do you still make the take naptime? What do they do if they aren't actually sleeping?
My 4 year old is off naps. She will only nap if she is seriously over tired and we pop her into the car at 2pm or later.

Ha ha ha. No. He stopped napping before 3. Now, he will take the odd car nap or the nanny can get him to nap once in a blue moon at home.

Yes, she still naps everyday. Definitely not as long as before but she still loves it!

My 4, almost 5 yr old stopped napping when he turned 4. Which was nice, because he had trouble falling asleep, and now it's nice to have 2 kids that don't nap. My DD napped until she was 5.

Our almost 4 year old still naps. We limit them to an hour long on the weekend.

Nope. She stopped napping right a little before 3 but we did quiet time for a few months. She's always slept a good stretch at night usually around 12 hours (sometimes more!) and she has never fallen asleep in the car. I much prefer putting her to bed early and having my evenings free so I'm not interested in trying to keep her on a nap bc for us that would mean a later bedtime. We know a few kiddos that still napped at 4 but they were early risers (like 6am)

No, he was still napping at our house on the weekends but we put a stop to it because he was too hyped up at bedtime.
Although, his cranky level is still pretty high in the evening so I miss them

He naps at daycare (1.5-2 hrs) but not at home. He just moved to a new class so I want him to get settled before I talk to the teacher about reducing his nap.

She only naps occasionally -- like for a week when she was going through a growth spurt (I assume). On a normal day, she just has to play quietly in her room for 60-90min while her little sister naps.

My four year old has been off naps for a few months now. She takes one occasionally (like on weekends...DH is very good at wearing her out!), but yesterday when she took one, she stayed up til MIDNIGHT (I'm not kidding!). So yeah, as much as I wish she still napped.....I don't think I'll let that happen again on my watch!

She was napping at school but they put her in a different class for summer camp that doesn't take any naps. She hasn't napped at home in years.

No way. I can count on one hand how many times he fell asleep during the day the year he was four.
