I Love my Daughter with all my heart. Don't get me wrong. I enjoy spending time with her. But lately, she has been SO ANNOYING! She has recently turned 3-1/2. And at night when DH is home, all she wants to do is just and yell and run around and pull on clothes and just be...irritating. And when you get down on her level to talk to her and tell her what she is doing wrong, SHE GIGGLES!!! Urg. Anybody else experiencing this? Will it end? Any advice on what I can do, aside from whippingh her and screaming every 20 seconds?

My son is like this, just 2 1/2. We think it has to do with the baby being so close to being born, but it is very frustrating indeed!! He has stopped using his manners, started whining non stop, pulls on my clothes, and many other things. I get easily flustered (being 9 months preg) and aggitated. No ideas for you though, besides repitition and constant reminders.

My ds1 went through that at 3.5 and now again at almost 5. Just be consistant and don't allow her to be disrespectful or do anything she shouldn't or she will continue and it'll be harder to break as she gets older.

OMG yes! My son is 4 & I think he's just trying to get more attention since his baby sister was born 3 months ago, & he gets SO irritating! He doesn't listen, constantly does whatever he wants; gets attitude with me; & the most annoying thing: he wants me to pretend to make things "talk" so he can have conversations with them ALL THE TIME... I love him so much & I do it so he doesn't feel left out, but I really get tired of pretending to be the dog or his pillow constantly lol

 Uh...DS is 4.5, and he still drives me nuts.  Its actually worse now.  The second he turned four he also got this horrible attitude where not only is he constantly talking and making a god awful screeching racket, he also screams (like literally blood curdling banshee screams) at me when i ask him to do something he doesnt want to/send him to time out/make him eat/get in the car/ put his shoes on/ give his sister her toys back and on and on....

My daughter is doing that right this second. She is 4 1/2 and running around like crazy and yelling.  She also talks NON STOP. I just keep remembering how much I'm going to miss this when she is in kindergarten this fall and gone all day :(

lol I am glad to know I am not alone. She also makes me have her toys talk. I guess I am just not any good at that. Or she wants to pretend she is Caliou. That show is SO ANNOYING! I have to call her Caliou. I have to pretend I am the Mom. And we have to act out the shows! Arg! I Love Her, and I do it because I remember being a kid and wanting to be around my parents. But it just isn't my favorite...

My boys are 2 and 4. My 2 yr old is rude as hell with his screaming, hitting, swipping things, just plain rude! My 4 yr old talks non stop, yells, moves non stop, interrupts, and just tries to get constant attention. My kids are super annoying!
