    I remember seeing your other thread when your were concerned about the carers their and what they said.......

    What you are saying is completely and utterly normal. Remember as much as you said he is happy he has had a bit of change in recent times and kids can 'react out' because of it.

    I would try not to get worked up about it. Give him time. It took my 3 year a good 5 months to be completely settled at his new daycare.

    My son was biting, hitting the works. Now I never hear any kind of reports like that at all.

    Just keep working with the carers and reinforcing what they do at home. The great thing is that they are supportive and willing to help.

    He's only 3, you are in no way a failure. The fact that you are seeking advice proves you are a loving, caring mumma who wants to do the best by her son.

    I've looked after at least 100 x 3 year olds over the years and his behavior is definately on the "normal" side of things. Perhaps the daycare could try and engage him in activities rather than guided play, this will give him less opportunity to throw toys or behave inappropriately and will also give them a chance to demonstrate appropriate behavior.

    It's an age stage thing he's going through. He's testing his boundaries. Stick to your guns your not a failure

    Thanks all. I was really starting to think it was the way I was parenting.
    Or
    Perhaps there is something developmentally 'wrong' with him.

    Ps- what about the 3-4 kids coming up to me at pickup time telling me all the 'naughty' things ds did to them? That doesnt seem normal.

    Kids love to dob, I would be concerned over the word "naughty". It should never be used in a child care setting. Some kids are just impulsive, he might be on a steep learning curve.

    If you are worried that the issue is developmental, talk to his care givers openly & honestly about your fears, they should be able to point you in the right direction.

    The teachers never use the word naughty, it's the kids picking it up from each other I assume (home).
    I think ds is impulsive. I'll definitely bring it up with the nurse soon.
