    Default Just moved house and toddler has become a NIGHTMARE!

    I'm starting to get desperate: my 3yo DD has become a NIGHTMARE since we moved house recently! Her behaviour is just dreadful sometimes, so I end up yelling at her more than usual, and as a result (my theory, at least) she's become more clingy - it's as if she's checking mummy still loves her, which breaks my heart. I constantly tell her that even though mummy gets angry sometimes, I'll always love her, but I think she's too young for that to really sink in. She's started waking up at least once a night for no good obvious reasons such as needing the toilet, and either comes into mummy and daddy's bedroom or stands in the hallway crying. She's regressed in terms of toileting and has frequent accidents. She's started bawling again when I drop her off at daycare and doesn't want me to go. She's also become really disobedient at times and just laughs when I try to discipline her and does it (the naughty behaviour) anyway. Oh, and don't even ask me about the tantrums...!

    I'm at the end of my tether and I just don't know what to do! Please, can someone tell me they've experienced something similar! Please!!!

    I hope it improves for you and your family soon! I don't have any advice but am interested what others say as we are moving this weekend!!!! My DS 2.5 has already become very clingy, since we started packing boxes. He hasn't changed any other behavior yet.

    I dont know about the moving thing but my 2yo dd has been having similar behaviour recently especially the tamtrums and clinginess (is that a word?) im also going slightly mad, the only thing i can put it down to is that my partner was off work for 3 mths and has recently returned, or its just the terrible twos. I feel like i cant even leave to house with her, its just constant tantrums when she doesnt get her own way, its embrassing to me, i feel like people are going to avoid us because of her behaviour. Really i dont have any advice, but your welcome to come join the nuthouse with me!

    Miss3 started to became a nightmare one month after she turned 3yo. I posted on here about it and found a lot of mothers with similar problems with a 3yo. It just seems to be that age.

    It took a couple of months to settle down. Now she is 3½ and is back to being a wonderful child.
