  • She's testing her limits. Be firm and let her know there are consequences. It's normal.

  • You just described my 3 year old as well! Sometimes she says "your my best friend mommy" other times -- "I don't like you anymore"! UGH! :-)

  • My 3 year old is the same way! She bounces off the walls from sun up to sun down. Sometimes it is so frustrating that she doesnt want to listen, but i am not as firm as i should be with her. Sometimes she gets away with certain things that are not tolerated other times, so im sure its just as frustrating to my daughter as it is to me. Im going to be more firm and consistant and hopefully her attitute will improve.
