Ok, how do you react when everyone you meet comments on how challenging your children are?!
I had my manager round for 15 mins this afternoon. DS2 was here, and was no different really to normal - very full on, into everything, 2 year old behaviour. He has "invisible" disabilities and speech delay, and some behavioural problems, but isnt that much different to his 4 year old brother. But she kept mentioning about how challenging he was, and was I getting enough support (single p/t working parent)
What are 2 and 4 year olds like then? Maybe mine arent "normal"? I know I love them being in bed at 6.30pm every night, and am on citropram (marraige breakdown last year, struggled with children at times) but should I be worried about my 4 and 2 year old's behaviour more than I am?!
Do any of you get these kind of comments about your children?
My DS1 is your typical 2 yr old boy- into everything, incredibly willful, energetic, quite feral really!
If you tell us more about their behaviour then you will get more of an idea of what's 'normal' and waht isn't. Some children are more challenging than others though aren't they? It's a personality thing often. My DS1 does seem more challenging and demanding than the other similar aged toddlers I know but his behaviour is still within the remit of 'normal' for a 2yr old.
