Help, My Four-Year-Old is Broken!

Ok, so tell me this. How come I heard so much about the terrible two’s and then the Threenager stage but why has no one ever mentioned the four-year-old to me, eh?! The last two stages were nothing compared to what we have hit right now and I don’t think I am exaggerating when I say my four-year-old is broken!

Is anyone else’s child around this age happy one minute, having a meltdown the next, then angry, then storming off to their bedroom, crying, then suddenly happy again? Continue reading “Help, My Four-Year-Old is Broken!”

The Dawn of the Threenager

I had previously heard of the term ‘Threenager’ (a three year old who acts out as a teenager) but assumed that it was simply an extension of the toddler stage and wouldn’t upheave my life any more than his previous ‘toddlerdom‘ behaviour already had done. Last week I was proven wrong… Very wrong!

After witnessing a brand new attitude, repeatedly being told that certain things were  Continue reading “The Dawn of the Threenager”

Toddler Tantrums? The Solution is Actually Simple

Toddler tantrums are all fun and games, aren’t they?! We have been through the pre-stages of the well-known ‘terrible two’s’ but just recently everything has cranked up a notch. For me, it came as a bit of a shock with Jake going from a frustrated little one who maybe had a tantrum once in a while, usually related to my lack of understanding what he needed, to being a crazed tiny being who I didn’t recognise anymore! The first phase of this- prior to turning 2 – didn’t last too long and as he was so small he was easily calmed and also, being a boy, he didn’t have the attention span to make it last much longer than 30 seconds!
