So its almost midnight here at home and my 4 year old is still awake. If he doesn't nap he has such meltdowns and then if he does we stay up late! I'm listening to his child stories of frogs, then he talks about playhouse disney, he just switched to another chair, its like he has ants in his pants.

What should I do about the naps?

Then to top it off he is the early riser in the family. Regardless of the time he falls asleep he is the one to wake everyone else up. Man this is driving me nuts! Now he has decided to color. I'm giving him 10 more minutes because I'm about to crash!

I read something that stuck with me when I was havingt rouble with my baby. Good sleep, begets more good sleep. Meaning, if they have good structured naps, they will sleep longer at night. I would keep him naping, and allow only quiet play time in his bed about an hour before you would like him to sleep. I started doing that with my son about a month and a half ago and putting him to bed between 7 and 8pm, and now (a month later) he sleep 9 to about 6:30. It sounds like your child isn't really 'awake', just avoiding going to bed as he keep switching from activity to activity. I would definatly try a nap schedule (as close to one as really possible) for a few weeks and see if it imroves his bedtimes...xox
