I offically dislike the 3 age

My son turned 3 today. We had our worst confrontation to date this evening. I am disappointed in myself for letting it escalate so bad. But I also can't believe how difficult he could be. He wouldn't do ANYTHING i said. Not with trying to reason, trying to give options, putting my foot down. I feel bad ending his birthday so badly (we actually celebrated yesterday so today was pretty much a normal routine but still). Right before bed we were rocking and crying together. He threw his arms around me and asked me to help him stop crying... I felt so bad.

Also the "Whys" have come back! Have you experience this? It's time to put on your PJs "Why" Because they keep you warm "Why".... "why"... "why"! Where did this come from!

Tomorrow...

I Will keep my patience
I Will take a step back and let him come to his own decisions
I Will strive to understand what he is feeling
I Will continue to love

Hugs. I dislike 3 year olds. DS has me at the end of my rope with his 3 year old antics. Dd was the same

Re: I offically dislike the 3 age

My daughter is 3.5 and goes from being the cutest little thing every to being something out of the Exorcist. I keep telling myself I just have to make it until she is four... only 6 months to go.

Seeing how she acts now, I am scared for when she becomes a teenager!

My ds is almost 3. He is such a different person than me. I struggle to understand how his mind works and we butt heads daily. Today I lost my temper and yelled at them...had to go in and apologize. Tomorrow will be better.
