    With the monsters talk my dd started being worried about dragons. A month later we got our house sprayed for spiders and while dd was with me I asked the guy if he was also spraying for deagons and monsters. Luckily he clicked and played along saying he had. This then stopped talk of dragons

    Hi harvs, this sounds very normal to me. My ds1 was like that at the same age, and also my dd is like that in many respects now (turns 4 in july). My dd wont sleep in the day now unless its if we happen to be driving. Some mornings she wakes up upset and it can make for a challenging day for her and us. I have noticed she seems to have more awareness these days and also having a growth spurt.

    Default I need insights about DS

    Sounds normal to me.
    But that doesn't make it any easier.

    Thank you again everyone! I can't express enough how your responses have all brought me back from a one way ticket to Crazytown... @BettyV it's all good - your response seriously helped my perspective and then Dr Google helped me lose it again :-)

    Now to survive the next 6 months or so...then it's easy! Right? RIGHT?

    As everyone else has said, 3 is HARD. Wine and chocolate are the only thing that I've found that helps. Me obviously. The poor little mites are taking so much in and they just can't deal with it all.

    Hey Harvs a lot (even the chopping the head stuff!) sounds like normal 3yo behavior. That being said if you have a feeling in your gut there is no harm in asking a GP to refer you to a pediatrician. Did that for my DS (as things just didn't seem right) and a few tests later there are some minor speech and other issues. We're getting some extra help early on before it becomes a big problem.

    I suppose my point is don't panic, but don't hesitate to reach out to your GP.

    Hang in there.

    I have just 'survived' the threes, it was the worst year with a lot of stuff that you listed happening.
    Defiant
    Wouldn't sleep
    Controlling to the point of despair ( me)
    Bossy
    Over the top drama tantrums and histrionics
    Was scared of monsters too and a bunch of other stuff ( even flies ffs)
    She also begun crapping herself to punish me ( she knew how to toilet, but knew poo knickers ground my gears)
    Went through an extended period of really bad sleep, even the daycare ladies looked fully fed up with her, every morning, when I dropped her off to them I felt thrilled and free, then she turned four and each week things just get better, she has a lot to say, most of it is rather sweet and she is developing a great sense of humour, tantrums are nearly a thing of the past I just feel like it's coming together and she is developing a great sense of right and wrong and has developed empathy , I'm just starting to really enjoy her company and its fun now to go do things together.

    It's the age, it's a horrible horrible horrible age . I only realised how tense I was when I started to relax abit. Hang in there, the pay off is not far away.
