I'm trying to educate our nanny on 4 yr old typical behavior and expectations. Would you mind answering the following questions?
How often does your 4-4.5 yrs old says "thank you" and "Please" without being reminded?
(choose one) -90-100% of the time -75% of the time -50% -25% -always needs to be reminded
How comfortable do you feel to bring your 4 year old to a 2-3 hrs dinner at a fancy restaurant? (medium noise level restaurant - not the completely quiet one)
How well does your 4 year old child share?
(choose one) -All the time, no problem -occasional fights or tears -my child does not share well
How does your 4 year old deal with a person she/he doesn't like?
How often does your 4 year old make a high-pitch noise or scream?
What is the average time outs per day do you have?
Thanks for your help.

My DD is 3.5 but I'll answer anyways...
1. 90-100% of the time
2. We don't go fancy places haha... but I think 2-3 hours is quite long for a little one even at 4 or 4.5!
3. occasional fights or tears
4. Just stays away from them.
5. VERY rarely!

Please take this comment in the right spirit,if, you are trying to educate someone,that means you should know the answers to your questions. Also, I don't care how many replies you get to your survey, all children are different, and your child may not be like any of these children. The best thing you can do,tell the nanny what to expect of your child and no one else,when parents start comparing their kids with other children, it seems to put a limit on their own personality and growth. Thank you.
