Is it normal for a 4 yr old to stare blankly at you or out the window when you try and explain something to them?
Is it normal for a 4 yr old to not be able to tell you what you JUST told them 5 seconds ago? Eg. 'If you don't put your shoes on then we're not going to the park' and then I ask DS 'what did mummy just say?' And he answers (in a Grumpy tone) 'nothing' or 'no!' Or 'leave me alone'
My DS does it all the time!!
Also EVERY time he hurts himself / feels sick / is tired etc, he just whinges and makes this extremely annoying screamy/ whingy sound. It drives me up the wall!! It makes my ears hurt and I get soo irritated because I'm so sick of hearing that noise!! I cannot understand what he wants or what has happened unless he tells me!! But instead he just does this screamy whingy noise.
Please tell me I'm not alone and that this behaviour is normal?
It's driving me mad!
