Tantrums, whining, not using manners etc are all part of the parcel of a 3yo.
But we will not stand for being disrespected, being rude or nasty to others, or being rough with her sister.
Trying desperately to nip that behaviour in the bud.
Thanks everyone for your input. 3 year olds can suck. Please tell me it gets better 😂
Will definitely be concentrating more on the positives!

Gets a lot better, it's amazing how much my 3 year old has improved in the last two months. She's (mostly) a pleasure again. This too shall pass

DD is 4.5 and I'm still waiting! But I now realise it's actually part of her personality, she's extremely spirited and really feels every emotion, be it happy, sad, angry, disappointed.
We are trying to roll with it and my biggest challenge is keeping my calm.
So I have no solutions or answers as I'm clearly not in the position to offer advice but I can offer you a massive hug. Deep breaths!

My little daughter changed at 3 , she is nearing 4 now and is much better . She would be absolutely rude to my husband and say she hated him and tell him to go away , my sons never did this! I was so sad about it all because she was being really rude and angry all the time . She would actually wake up in the morning and start crying and screaming over nothing .
I've realised she has a food intolerance for one , she cannot eat strawberries , jam , sultanas , bananas - probably more things also - without going off her nut !! I also realised what she really wanted when she totally freaked out was a hug and time with me . I know it's hard and infuriating but I think it's a phase and will pass . Keep a food diary to if you can and you may see a pattern .

I needed to read this today, thank you. We are having a hard time with our almost 3 year old. The turd word has been used a lot in the last couple of weeks! Good luck and here's hoping it gets better soon!

What's she doing wrong?
Get to the course of her "bad " behavior. Look at environmental factors.
Is she tired? Hungry? Frustrated? Help her manage her emotions by keeping calm yourself (i known its easier said than done).
Let her cool down and redirect her. Speak calmly but be firm.
Perhaps a change of scenery?
Put on the radio loud and dance all silly together to let out frustration.
Get out in nature
Let her have a say in thing's sometimes
