    Default arguing with DD

    I've been trying to explain to DD (age 3) that she is going to daycare tmz to meet some new friends.

    i've been arguing with her for the past 10 mins because she keeps telling me that she is going to her ''family'' rather then her ''friends''

    She is going to see her dad on the weekend and his family, hence her family, and i dont think she can comprehend both events.

    its kinda driving me a little batty right now lol, i'm trying to tell her where we're going tmz because when i talk to her about things like it she doesnt get AS upset over it, she usually handles things better.

    not this time.. lol.

    I wouldn't be arguing about it with her.

    Sometimes DS1 gets confused over things too. For example, "Look mummy, a car" "No that's not a car, it's a train" "NO! It's a car".

    I just let it go. They are still learning so much that you have to understand that they still get a little confused with things.

    I always find agreeing with them helps but not exactly.... like you could say..' that's right, you're going to see your family on Saturday, aren't you? Well done... but tomorrow you are going to daycare and your family wont be there, it will be a day with your friends". That way, you both win

    But yeah... choose your battles. Not much point arguing with a child - ever!
