  • My 3 year old girl is sweet, but whenever we say no to what she would like, she is out of control. When i am there, she'll just stay with me, but when i am not around, she seems to socialize along with other adults. She refuses to play with new kids, but she loves her cousins. She doesn't speak much language like other 3 year old kids, but she uses a lot of body language. She understands our instructions clearly and follow them like "throw this inside the bin, Put the bottle on the table".

    They're growing and learning about something totally new every day. i don't understand how anyone might really be concerned about this more than the fact until full term schooling, the people commenting will be the primary educators of these children, and whilst you proclaim your kids being good with counting and so on.

    3 Year Old Behavior Problems


    Normal 3 Year Old Behavior

    Sometimes it's difficult to know whether your child's behavior is at the range of normal misbehavior or if it could be something much more serious. Although some parents appear to be oblivious in order to serious warning flag, other parents are worried about behavior that's developmentally appropriate. Kids aren't intended to be robots. While they grow and learn, they are going to test limits. Kids can break household rules in order to observe how you'll react. When they get a negative consequence for breaking the rules, it will deter the behavior from happening repeatedly.

    Determining normal misbehavior requires information about child development. What's normal for any preschooler's behaviors isn't normal for any teenager. Parents need to be familiar with normal social, emotional as well as sexual development in each age group.

    How to Discipline a 3 Year Old

    How to Discipline a 3 Year OldArranged clear boundaries of what's acceptable as well as what's not really acceptable. These needs to be constant. As an example, hitting siblings/throwing food/pushing another child is obviously wrong.

    Always put into action a consequence for any broken boundary. Perhaps disapproval, time out, or even the naughty step (see above).

    Make sure your child has to know this consequence in advance. For instance: 'If you hit your sister again, you'll carry on the naughty step.'

    Stay consistent about implementing your rules/boundaries; otherwise your child will quickly learn never to take you seriously.

    Make sure your rules are usually followed when you're not around by speaking to your child's nursery or even childcare provider as well as grandparents.
