Toddlers don't always need nap time

Q: Over the holidays, our 28-month-old daughter stopped napping. A couple of days we were so busy with Christmas that a nap simply was not possible. Now, we put her in her crib for her to nap, and she spends about one and a half to two hours in there, wide awake, playing and talking to herself, and then we take her out. I know we cannot force her to sleep, but is there some way we can get her to want to sleep and take a nap again?

Spying on 'family circuses' is entertaining

I must, in the interest of full disclosure, begin this column with a confession: I am a voyeur; more specifically, a parenting voyeur. In the words of Chauncey Gardner, I like to watch; more specifically, I like to watch people interact with their kids.

'Backtracking' is not good parenting

Stop the presses! I interrupt this column with an important update: Infamous Chinese tiger mother Amy Chua, whose account of her parenting methods ("Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother," Penguin) has provoked a tsunami of outrage, now says that much, if not most, of her description was a "joke," "deadpan humor," and "tongue in cheek."
