My friend has a 3 y/o DD that I watch for her while she is at work. My friend has been seeing this guy for about a year, living with him for about 6 mo. They are now engaged. I have met him many times, they have come over to our house for game night & dinner. I really like him, he seems very nice. He is a doting fiance & a caring father figure. He does not display any type of aggression.
However, my friend has had some "issues" if you will. (she comes from an abusive relationship so her walls are up. But given her past relationship, she may be seeing something that may not be there, you know?)
Her DD has seemed to regressed in the potty training. She used to tell her mom & me that she had to go or would just go by herself. Now she has an accident almost every day. She seems to have major tantrums often. Tantrums that include screaming at the top of her lungs, crying, etc for extended periods of time. She also does not want to eat dinner. Apparently, she will sit at the table with them & not eat. I am not sure if she is just being picky or what.
I have a 4 y/o of my own. So some of these behaviors I have seen in my own child. He would *sometimes* have accidents. And boy, could he throw a tantrum when things didn't go his way. So I can not be sure what to think.
The little girl seems to love this man, she does not seem afraid of him at all. Same with the mother.
I have been watching this little girl for about a year & a half. She has always been a somewhat difficult child, but also very sweet & kind. Her behavior has only changed over the last few weeks but there have also been a fair amount of changes as well, mom's work schedule has changed & they are preparing to move & fiance has been going away on business quite a bit.
What do you guys think?
