[ - ] dc is two and while things have smoothed out a lot compare to the first years of no sleep, milk and food spit up, crying...etc, it seems like now dh and I have more "real" arguments about parenting. Does it just get worse when they get older? As babies you are just tired and snippy at one another, but when they are older you disagree about how to discipline, how much TV is okay, how much junk food...etc 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We were snippy in the first year and a bit in the second from both being tired but we don't disagree at all about how to raise our DC. We are very much in sync and agree on most everything - school choice, eating, sleeping, disciplining, etc. DC is almost 4 now. [ Reply | More ]

Granted, she has a new brother (4 mos), school just started with longer days than last yr, but man, everything is an argument, everything is "no," "I don't want to," "I can do what I want." Then she gets reprimanded or punished (eg, toy she's misusing gets taken away for the day) and she flys into a raging tantrum. Is it just the age? Perfect storm of summer ending, dh being around less, school starting and feeling the impact of her brother a little more now that we're getting back into our routine?

Yes it's pretty typical. Transitions are tough. DC just started k and is loving it but lots of tantrums. I would make sure to give dd a lot of time to be active and play. Make sure she gets enough healthy food and a lot of physical activity. Also make sure she is allowed some time to make decisions and have a bit of control. Even if it's picking out clothes (do you want the pink dress or the red?) or choosing dinner or even which way to walk to school. And lots of praise for good behavior. Good luck! [ Reply | More ]
