I have a 4 yr old little girl. She seems to have a hard time focusing one any one task. She gets distracted very easily. I have to be VERY specific if I want her to accomplish any kind of a task. Whenever we do anything, even going to the bathroom in public restrooms, it takes her foooooreeeeeever to go, wash hands, dry hands and get out.
When she clears the table dishes, she will take one dish to the sink, then gets lost in something else, and completely forgets her task of cleaning the other dishes off. I have to constantly be on top of her to finish anything. Her attention is at the most, 20 minutes for any acitivity.
Am I simply forgetting how 4 yr olds are, (my DS is 7) or is her behavior a bit extreme. It is VERY frustrating for me, and my patience is at it's breaking point. I feel like a horrible mother for getting so frustrated with her, especially if the case is I am forgetting how 4yr olds truly are!! Thanks.
