I have a 3 year old he is very loving but sometimes it feels like somdays he is part demon. I work in a preschool room and he is in the same classroom as me. He sometimes listens and other times he doesnt. He is sometimes physical towards other but other times he is very loving. his newst thing has been calling himself stupid. I have no idea where he got it from because I never talk like that I am trying to tell him he is a very smart little boy. I have asked numerous peoples opinions about getting him tested for whatever some people just tell me its normal thing for boys to do...others tell me its because I am mom and hes seeking attention...anyones little ones like this

I know most places don't place your child in the same room your teaching. I would ask your boss to either move you or your son to another room.

I agree but we have only one infant room a toddler room a 3-4 year old room and a school age room. He just got placed in my room because my daycare closed.

I'm kinda there with my almost 3yo (see my post "I've had it". Lol

I've thought about talking to her dr about her behavior at her 3yo wellness check.

I am glad to see im not the only one who is having issues with their 3 year old. My oldest son who will be 7 next week never acted like he did ever. I never had issues of him bitting me, hitting me, calling himself names, nothing he was like and angel compared to my 2nd youngest child.

 My son is only 29 months and doesn't speak much at all and when he gets mad he will hit himself in the head or his legs and arms.  I do not not spank my child so I do not understand where it is coming from and it actually scares me and breaks my heart at the same time.

My son is four and he has the hyde and jackel thing for sure. I agree that he's wanting your attention, its good that you reassure him when he's being mean to himself. Have you asked him why he does and thinks these things?

My pedi has told me that part of that is normal. That feelings are confusing for toddler boys and therefor drastic. Part of it is animalistic instinct in boys to fight and then culture that teaches not to. However. Mommy knows best so if you feel like it isn't normal, have him tested. My DS is seeing a specialist in Nov because we have decided his behavior is beyond normal.

Both of my boys (ages 3 and 5) do the jeckyll-and-Hyde thing. I think it's normal. Kids are moody just like we are- they have grumpy days for whatever reason, but they don't know how to control it. So Whatever they're feeling is what you're gonna get in behavior. It's all pretty normal.

Well my DD was like that when she was 2 and 3, new daycare, new friends, she had some changes in her life and I guess she couldn't control her emotions, as adults we cope with changes and try to control, kids at that age don't know, for me its normal, the ped told me that we should wait until 4 or 5 years old to test, because younger than that, its all normal. hitting, bitting, she never called anyone names but she had some behaviour issues, it just took us a lot of love and work to correct her  and when I received a complaint that she hit someone at home I didn't let her watch tv or play for 2 hours. and I use to tell her why I was doing that.
