Hi I am new here and looking for some advice.
My 2yo (almost 3yo) is a handful most of the time. She seems to have impulse control issues and quickly lashes out (yelling/hitting) when she's unhappy with the situation. She can be quite violent. We have never hit her & have only yelled if she was in danger (running onto the road)
She has a HUGE vocabulary & is very smart for her age, she however prefers to whinge or get physical when upset.
We use time out to discipline her, & make her apologise which she does & she seems sorry but she's quick to act out again.
She's hyperactive too & she does as she's told but only if I get down on her level & make eye contact when talking (she struggles to maintain eye contact & gets distracted easily)
Her pre-school is mildly concerned & have called KU to do an evaluation?
I just don't know where to go from here. Seems like every kid has 'something' these days.
Does she sound like your 2/3yo? She's very different to the ones I've met.
