Do you have a 3 1/2 year old or child who acts older than what they are??

I feel so guilty sometimes because he is still a baby but he's so independent sometimes, he gets up in the morning eats his banana I leave him, his milk, & plays until I wake up....He's such a good little boy should I baby him more?

  • I've been wondering the same question because there are times that I have to pull all nighters to study for exams or get homework done and sometimes, I just don't here my daughter wake up. She goes into the kitchen, gets a piece of fruit and puts a movie in by herself and will watch it until I wake up...

  • i am awake before my son every day, not that i disagree with what you do but i would FLIP OUT if i woke up and he was awake just hanging out watching a movie LOL however, he is VERY independent. I still baby him to an extent though.

  • my daughter is the same way. i will leave a bowl of cereal out and a cup of milk in the fridge and she pours her own milk in her bowl and gets a spoon. she basically makes her own breakfast and has been doing it since she was 3 years old, she's 5yrs now. then she plays or watches cartoons until i wake up. seriously, it's hard to wake up at 6-7am with your kid. i don't baby my kid, i stopped babying my kid when she turned 2. i think it makes them smarter
