Just as I thought I was about to breathe a sigh of relief as his terrible two age nearly passes in exactly 10 days, I find that my nearly 3 yo son is getting a bit uncontrollable and enjoys being selfish - welcome to another chapter of life. I often go to play dates with friends and their bubs, DS is rather selfish when it comes to sharing and playing together. As soon as another bub approaches him, he does not hesitate to (physically!)push them away or even throw a toy towards them and ocassionally a smack!
I dont know what else to explain here, but I have tried a gazzilion times explaining to him that pushing/ hitting/ throwing/smacking isnt nice at all... But he insists that he still does not want to share. There is nothing wrong with ds social skills, he talks and approaches us easily... but he just does not like being around other toddlers just simply because he does not want to be interrupted and even share toys with them.
I often feel bad to fellow playdate mums that their kids get at least a smack or a push from DS everytime we meet. How do I get Ds to be a nice friend amongst other toddlers? I have warned ds a gazzilion times about playing and sharing .. But he refuses to understand... Quite often i raise my voice and yells to him.. Maybe he is now resistant to my method of disciplining? I am now too exhaused to discipline him becuse he thinks Im a joke... I need help because ds does not seem to have a slightest fright of me!
