3 year old boys - So glad it's not just mine!

I have been having some real problems with my 3 year old recently and thought it was just me - as most of my friends have little girls - but thankfully I have spent the last 2 days with separate friends and their 3 year old boys and I have seen the same behaviours in them.

* Not listening
* Huge tantrums
* Shouting

Where have our lovely pre-schoolers gone? I want the terrible 2's back!!

It's not just your boy, and it's not just boys! My girls were exactly the same grin

But girls play together Belgo - they don't ignore all their toys and instead throw tennis raquets at their friends head as a game and then get upset when their friend lobs it back and it hurts them despite being told this several times grin

MogandMe I've seen it all, boys and girls!

Sounds like my three year old boy, Mog. And two of the little girls I know.

I'm a nanny Belgo but until now stayed within the under 3 spectrum - this is all soooo new to me!!
