Re: Circle time stress

Hi, exactly the same thing happened to me with my daughter at a simalar thing, she was 18 months at the time. She is still hyper and jumps around everywhere and she's 4 soon. I notice that other children are not as fully charged as her, she natters constantly. She jumps all over the furniture all the time, has tantrums in shops and is realy aggressive towards her little brother. I do all the right things with reward charts, spending one to one time with her, and disciplining her by putting her in time out but nothing works. Alls i get from people when i raise my concerns is that there isn't a problem.

Re: Re: Circle time stress

Hello, thanks for replying. Nice to know I'm not the only one it happens too!! I'm sure there is no problem with your daughter at all and that people are right when they say so...its just not easy when you're going through it and you feel like the only one. I expect shes testing the boundaries...something im sure i'll go through too before long. I expect shes also finding her place in the world again since arrival of little bruv. Dont worry im sure she'll twig that tantrums dont deliver....dont worry wot people think in shops..stay consistent and dont give in...your daughter sounds a sparky little thing and will probably make a great leader one day. How great is that! Don't beat yourself up or worry what other people are thinking. Be kind to yourself and know that you will all pull through. Love sara xx
