She's 3 years old and recently we had a lot of head butting between the two of us. She refuses to answer when I ask her something. Wether I'm being kind or get annoyed after a while. She doesn't want me to help her, at the same time she CANNOT tie her laces herself. SHe get angry really fast, pulls my clothes, trys to hit me. The other day she spit at me! I'm exercising patience, but that was it! The whole neighbourhood probably heard me, I didn't care. I told her off really bad.
Also she's sucking on her fingers a lot and want to cuddle up on the couch under tons and tons of blankets. I know, she needs to feel secure (like every child). And this is warm and cozy and safe.
I don't think I ask impossible things from her. My gutt-mommy-feeling tells me she doesn't want to grow up right now. Being big can be scary because you get more responsibilties.
I let her know that I love her and care for her and mommy will always be there for her. But sometimes it's almost impossible to get the normal daily things done like brushing teeth and dressing up. You don't wanna know how many tears we had lately (including me, lol).
Any tips how I can help her through this? I want my happy baby back. I spend as much time as I possibly can with her.
