When Your Boy Really Turns into a Boy!

We’ve gradually made our way through the stages. The terrible two’s weren’t too bad and I would have to say this threenager stage has been much worse but now I have found myself wandering into new territory, a place where my child is testing and pushing boundaries more than he ever has done before. Yep, Jake is turning into a proper boy!

It’s been a change over the last 2 weeks and Continue reading “When Your Boy Really Turns into a Boy!”

why oh why? questions from kids

Why, Why, Whhhhhhyyyy?!

Yes, you have guessed it from the title, we have hit the ‘why’ stage and hit it hard. I am going slightly stir crazy this week and being asked what has felt like a million questions is precisely why. How do these stages just suddenly appear? I swear these kids are given a handbook before they pop out of the womb which gives them timings for when each stage is meant to hit– Age 1 get into every cupboard, destroy all you can, pull apart the sanitary towels and look cute doing it. 18 months-2years ease gently into the terrible two’s and then BAM!

The Differences Between a Three-Year-Old and a Two-Year-Old

As a first-time parent, it can be easy to get swept along with the milestone charts, the opinions of others, the ‘I did it this way’ advice and listening to a never-ending cycle of those magical words ‘it gets easier’. What many people fail to mention is that the newborn bit is actually the easiest part (in my personal opinion) – so straight away you are being led into a false sense of security that things will become easier. The terrible two’s are one of the most talked about phases yet these are not actually the worst that your child will go through. Just when you think you have come through that stage there is a whole new phase waiting for you… One which you are never prepared for and one which out tantrums any 2-year-old meltdown any day. Yes, it is the threenager. Not only are these children more stroppy, but they are also much bigger and have a better understanding of everything around them and this is where the problems lie!

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”
