My 4-Year-old Constantly Wants Me to Play with Her: Advice?

Hi, Just wondering how other moms have responded to their young kids when they want you to play with them. Lately my 4-year-old daughter is constantly asking me to play with her (usually pretend-play), and gets upset when I have to do other things like housework. She seems to have lost the ability to entertain herself, and it's driving me a bit crazy. She has a younger brother (19 months), but he's too young to really play with her the way that she wants to. Any ideas on what to do?

Home Daycare Vs. Preschool

Hi mamas! My daughter is just about 3 1/2. She's gone to the same home daycare since she was 4-5 months old and has been very happy there. Now that she's 3, however, the other kids her age have moved on to preschools (they have older siblings who are at those preschools, so it makes more sense to drop two kids off at one place.). This means my daughter is at daycare each day with two babies and two younger toddlers (about 18 months old - one is her brother!). I love the idea of my daughter and son being in the same place, but I'm...

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...

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. ...

Homeschooling a 3 Year Old

Any advice on starting a cuuriculum for my 3 year old. I'm a SAHM and our budget is slim, right now I can't afford to get him into half day preschool. The least expensive I've found is $95 a week. So I've been seriously thinking of homeschooling him. What advice, websites and curriculum can be beneficial and easy to teach. Thanks moms

Sunday School for a 3 Year Old

Hello - I am thinking about starting to go to church with my daughter. I have no experience with church and a child. At her age, will she actually be in a Sunday school with structured activity, stories, etc or will it be more of a nursery/playtime thing? I am sure each church is different, but can you tell me what your 3 year old does in church? Thanks much!
