So my DD is 3 and will be 4 at the start of March. She just never seems happy!
Every day she doesn't want to do what we tell her to do - from eating, to getting dressed, to going out, to staying in all day. So you give her 2 or 3 options but she never wants those.
In the same breath though when you're being silly with her or playing with her (with what SHE wants to play with) she's giggly and smiley and happy. But the second something doesn't go her way, she turns into hysterical hyperventilating mess. We seem to battle everything every single day. It's getting rather old and monotonous as the happy periods are so few and far between.
Is this normal 3/4 year old behaviour? If not, what could be the problem? I feel that she isn't happy with the amount of attention she gets. But we give her so much attention. But I also have a 15 month old DS who is very needy to deal with and a household to run and work 3 days a week. I feel like I can't give her any more quality time than I do - we would have just the two of us at least an hour and a half a day together just the two of us, but maybe that's not enough?
Experiences greatly appreciated and Merry Christmas to all
