Our 3 year old daughter is acting out not only at home, but now at preschool. We tell her what we expect of her, but she completely ignores us (mom and dad and teachers). When we ask her if she knows what we said she is able to repeat what we wanted her to do,but she chooses to ignore us. What can we do, together with her teacher so that our daughter can return back to the smart respectable little girl that she used to be? Also she only started to act out at home after her little brother was home for two weeks. At school it started last week. Please help!

Make her your little helper for everything! Loading dryer, folding clothes, getting wipes for diaper changes.....anything. Heap on the praise. Get her a baby doll to take care of. Make sure she gets some of your....and dad's.......undivided time each day to play, cuddle, etc. Doesn't have to be too long a time. Have a cuddly reading time. Take her to lunch or to the park once in awhile by herself because "big girls get to do these sort of things". It should pass once she knows she is still loved and has not been replaced. GL
