My SD is 4.5 and she lives with my SO and I. She had this thing with dirt. Today she got a spot (smaller than a dime) of dirt on the back of her pant leg and she flipped out! She does the same with a water. One small drop and she insists she needs to change. She gets to change if the water or dirt is really bad but for small spots I don't let her. She gets so furious with me.
As a preschool teacher I only encountered one little girl who would want to change but not like this. I could talk with the other little girl and explainw hy she didn't need to change and she'd be fine with it. My SD won't hear it. She eventually ends up in a time out until she can calm down. Then she's over it.
I'm not used to raising girls. I have two older boys and two nephews who are very different than girls! I'm wondering if I should be concerned about this behavior. It's not new but it seems to be getting worse.
