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. ...

ADHD In 4 Year Old

I am convinced my 4 year old son has ADHD. Although he has not been formally evaluated his PreK teacher also shares this concern as he is the only child in his class not capable of staying on task for more than a few minutes, is very impusive, and seems to need to be moving continuiously. I am not interested in medicating him at this age (with traditional perscriptions medications at least) but would love some opinions on any homepathic or natural remedies to help him gain some control. Is there anything you have used that worked really...

Do You Own a Guinea Pig? If So, Please Tell Me Everything About Them.

My children want a guinea pig. They got a book from their school library and they are reading about them and trying to "sell" the idea to me and their daddy. I just don't want to have to take care of an animal. Our cat of 18 years died two years ago and we are a family of 6 and we are busy. I have grown quite accustomed to not having to take care of a pet. My oldest daughter, 12 years old, promised she would care for a guinea pig and I really have no idea what is involved in caring for one. So here are some basic questions I'd...

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...

My 3-Year-old Son Is Out of Control

I never thought I'd be writing about this. I used to see "poorly-behaved children", and I always assumed it was a parenting problem. (I'm sorry, all you parents! I'm getting my payback now!) My son is 3 years and 2 months. He is extremely active and always has been. However he was always pretty well-behaved until about 6 months ago. Now he doesn't listen to anything I say (or anything anyone says). It's as though he has zero self-control and is angry about something (I realize he's only 3, but still). Whether I tell him to do...

4 Year Old Behavior

I am wondering if any of you have experienced some of these characteristics with your 4 year old (I have a boy). He can't stand tags in his clothing, socks are too tight, pants are too tight (even though they are not.....), no long sleeve shirts (can't stand them!). Behaviors he has are: tantrums....screaming, yelling, and hitting the bedroom door...etc... when we are transitioning him from one thing to the next...and he is not happy about the next event. We also are hearing from others that he is bugging other kids who are next to him...

4 Year Old Needs to Go to Preschool...

Hi Moms~ I am having trouble deciding about preschool and I could use some advice, particularly from those of you with a background in child development! My 4 year old is definitely ready for preschool. Problem is, he is very shy and hesitant to join a group of children or talk to another child, but once he does, he has a ball! I am expecting a huge battle. He has recently changed his view from "I don't want to grow up" to "I can't wait to go to school", but he is often brave right up until the last second, then chickens out! My...
