My three years old's behaviour is tearing our family apart. I just don't know what to do anymore. She is extremely spirited and a gorgeous kid but I'm struggling with managing her.
I can't see the wood for the trees anymore and have tried so many different things. Firstly her sleep is disrupted so every night she will either:
struggle to get to sleep or
wake 4/5 times and sometimes run around the house screaming when tried to put back to bed.
We have her in the bed some nights but it's not a viable option as she actually stays awake more (the other night 12-3 am) when in our bed.
Plus she wakes at 5 am everyday. She are slowly cutting out or down the day sleep which does make her go down easier.
Basically she is spending everyday extremely irritable. Constant screaming or whining and crying for most of the day.
She is stimulated and we do activities out of the house daily.
I've tried time out, time in, rewards, we identify her feelings with her and use lots of praise.
we have an xray referral to check for adenoids as at times she does mouth breathe and snore. Plus We are going to a paediatrician.
I'm lost where to next.
