Who's 3 year old acts like a teenager? One of my DDs is driving me crazy lately. Every time we try to leave the house, I get "I'm not going! I hate...." (and its usually a playground, storytime....something for them). And when we get there lately, she'll march off with her arms folded and tell me she's going home. She did this at a playground last week. Yesterday, my moms group had a very delayed egg hunt and while all the kids were looking for eggs, she threw her bucket and dramatically walked off. Her favorite answer to any question lately is "never!"
As far as I know at preschool (2x/week), she doesnt do this. I guess its for my benefit. Its frustrating when I try to make fun plans and get this reaction. Part of me feels like I should punish her and just keep her home, but its not fair to her sister (or me!).
Any advice on how to deal with this? I'm so not looking forward to 10 years from now!
