What is the biggest struggle you have with your 3 year old at the moment?

I would say it's still eating though we're trying to be really mellow about it so we're not really struggling per se. He does hit kids and steal their toys at preschool sometimes and they're dealing with it be removing him from the situation (they only do time outs as a last resort).

I'd say listening... which has been the case for over a year now. It's a challenge. He also tends to be overly sensitive at times which drives me a little crazy.

She is extremely stubborn, I have a hard time getting her to do things because she'll flat out say no & not care if she ends up in time out for it.

Throw the tomatoes now.............cuz this kid has nothing I can complain about. I've been through major terrible 2s and 3s with A&L and Jude either isn't going thru it or we haven't hit it yet. He is a good kid all around.

^ throwing a big fat juicy tomato at you!!

Listening and cooperating. Any time we ask her to do something, it's almost immediately followed with a "but" or "why" or some other random excuse. It's driving me insane.

trey really is a good kid, too megan - olivia on the other hand. shes a handful.

I dont have a lot to complain about. I'd say the worst thing he does, is he gets too physical with Olivia. i feel bad saying this...but she usually deserves it. She knows how to push his buttons with little things, like calling him "poo poo" 17 times in a row, and then he gets fed up & punches her. So i'm just trying to get him to understand that someone calling you "poo poo", no matter how irritating it might be, and no matter how many times she calls you that...does not give you the right to give her a black eye.

im also working on Olivia...but she's also only 17 months and persistant as H3LL.

Izzy's a pretty good kid for the most part. The only thing we really have to work on is her bossiness. She likes to tattle on other kids and feels the need to keep them in line. So I often have to tell her to speak to an adult about the situation, or just mind her own business, lol.

Right now, it's being disagreeable about everything. Well, not everything, but lots of stuff. She has a tough time transitioning from one thing to the next, and argues about whatever it is we want her to do. Once she gets into the next activity, she's fine, but the transitions can be rough, unless you catch her in just the right mood.
