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. ...

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...

My 4 Year Old Is Suddenly Refering to Himself by Name.

My 4 year old son is suddenly referring to himself by name. "Vance wants a cup of milk" , "Vance wants to go outside", Vance wants to play a computer game", Vance this and Vance that. I have repeatedly corrected him, but he continues to do it. Is this normal behavior for his age, a stage he is going through? I don't remember my 9 year old ever going this, but he was behind in speech when he started school and did not hardly talk at all. No one would dare say my 4 year old or my 2 year old were behind in speech. I could use some ear...

3-Year Old Has Been Coughing for 3 Months!

My 3-year old baby girl got sick with some kind of bug about 3 months ago. She got well pretty soon after that, but her cough never went away! She is not asthmatic, doesn't have any allergies. I took her to the doctor, she was tested for tb, her lungs sound clear, same with her heart, she is overall a very healthy and happy toddler. The doctor supposed she could have sinus infection and put her on antibiotics, but that didn't change the situation any, in fact I think her cough got worth. What is it? It really worries me. She coughs in the...

My 3 Year Old Is Constipated

Hi there, I have a problem that I need help with. I have a 3 year old girl who has been potty trained, but is having trouble going potty for #2. She states that she holds it in because it hurts. I give her prune juice every morning and also she loves to eat dried prunes, but is doesn't seem to help her, she is constatnly afraid that it will hurt. I have explained to her that she needs to let it out, but no success yet. Does anybody have any suggestions? I would truly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

What Do I Do for My 3 Year Old's Stuffy Nose???

Hi. Anyone else out there try to buy cold medicine this season for your toddler and finding that evertyhing has been taken off the market for cold medicine for kids under 6? I remember this happening this past year but forgot about it and my little girl has been battling a stuffy nose and cough that has been keeping her up at night so I thought I'd run out to the drugstore for some help and realized there are no medicines for this age group anymore. Does anyone still use this cold medicine and adjust the dosage? I heard that is why they...

ADHD In 3 Year Old

We have been observing our 3 year old for the last year and 1/2 for signs of ADHD. Well her symptoms have escalated in the last month. She is very defiant, gets frustrated very easily, is very impulsive and tests us on everything. She is "hyper" and won't sit still, but that is not a problem :0) can't ask her to do something I'm not capable of. She also goes hysterical at times when you try to show her how to do something or tell her no. I have ADHD and my husband has ADD, we have learned to cope with it and lead normal lives without...

Stomach Virus or Something Else?

My 6 year old daughter has been having severe stomach pain, usually within a a few hours of eating. It gets worse at night and she has woken up the last several nights around 10pm, crying that her stomach hurts. She has vomited a few times and immediately after that she feels better. At first I thought it was constipation so we gave her a children's laxative and she has had several BM's. She does not have a fever, no diarreah, doesn't seem sick except maybe a bit more tired from the late nights. No one in her class has anything like...

3 Year Old Behavior...

Hello there...I am looking for new tricks to have up my sleeve when dealing with my 3 year old daughter. As of late she has taken to shrieeking when put on a time out. I also have not been able to get her to say "I'm sorry for _____" once she's out of her time out. She flat out refuses and walks away or says she "can't". She also has taken to talking or raising her voice over mine to repeat herself when told "no" in getting something. This she picked up from me due to my using it when she started repeating herself so say "noooooo" over her....
