Unruly 3 Year Old

I wrote a couple of weeks ago and i really need some advise. My 3 year old girl is completely out of control. She does not listen to anyone, she is horribly bratty, and has no regard for anyone else. When we are with other children, she will rip toys away from them, push them, and is ALWAYS the boss. But, she is the first to cry when someone else does something to her that she doesn't like. She has started talking baby talk all the time. It's not an attention thing, because I give her attention 24/7 and try very hard to be patient. ...

3 Year Old Son Refuses to Potty Train

Hi, my 3 year old son does not want to potty train. We started training when he was 2 1/2 and I never pushed it then and now we're approaching 3 1/2 and he freaks out when I mention going on the potty. He can pee, but has only gone #2 a handful of times which were absolutely at my insistence and pushing. I talk about it daily to him but he just gets upset or unruly. We moved twice last fall and his world was turned upside down and I really think the instability has set him back a bit. But we've been in our home now 2 months and we're...

I Have a 3 Year old...enough Said :)

OK, mainly I'm just venting, but of course would love any ideas, input, etc. from those who have or have had 3 year old boys. My biggest frustration is...why in the world does he have to be so difficult with me? The simplest of instruction from me becomes a big issue. "Honey, please come here so I can change your diaper"...."no" (and runs away). I am firm with him, I use positive discipline, rewards, consequences, time outs and anything else I have learned, but it just seems like EVERYTHING little thing is a battle. By noon I've had it. I...

Birthday Party Goodie Bags

Is it just me or have these birthday party goodie bags taken the spotlight off the birthday kid and caused our children to expect to GET something all the time-even when it's not their birthday?? When I was a child I had to learn how to GIVE to others and not expect something everywhere I went. A birthday is the one time of the year that is the child's own special day. And when I was a kid I got excited about the cake and going to the party itself-not what I was going to receive at another's birthday party! The other gift-giving holidays...
