I love my kid but...

right now he is in his LOCKED bedroom banging away on the door screaming and crying as he has been for the past 30 minutes. He refuses to eat dinner every night (this is a new thing for the past 2 weeks). If he doesnt get what he wants, he hits. This is also new.

He turned into a real brat when he turned 3. But lately he has become a TERROR. He already told me he doesnt like me and is going to throw his fork at me.

Real cute.

Anyone up for a trade?

Re: I love my kid but...

  • Yikes - no takers here.  

    This was on my friend's facebook wall today. Maybe it'll make you smile:

    "

    thinks it's funny that there are times our kids are so cute we could just eat them...and other times we wish we had!!"

  • Oh now, we had no sign of the terrible 2's in our house, but at 3, I am getting my share. I get smacked around and yelled at for no good reason. He is so moody and grumpy and then turns on the sweetness 5 minutes later when he wants something. I hope my sweet boy comes back someday soon 
  • No but maybe you have my child because you just described him to a T. I'm so over the attitude and bratiness!

  • No trade here.  My kid called me an "idiot" this morning and he tells me daily that he doesn't like me anymore and sometimes tells me he hates me. In between, he's a sweet little boy who says, "Mommy, I really, really love you."  It's like living with Jekyll & Hyde.
  • You're not alone. Stephanie is a monster as well. The whining, screeching, attitude, rolling of eyes, hitting, throwing things, throwing food on the floor, blatantly not listening and like the PP said only being nice when she wants something....I can go on and on.  She also completely trashes the house and gets into all my stuff if I don't keep an eye on her constantly. (makes it hard to cook dinner or do anything else).  Lately she's been acting out....drawing with crayon on the furniture and wall (things she knows are wrong)....we took all her crayons away so now she trashes her toys and scratches them on the furniture like they are "pretend crayons". The morning routine is also hell....she refuses to get out of bed, use the toilet, brush her teeth...even getting dressed and combing her hair is torture. If we walk outside or into school she runs ahead of me and will not wait at all (not fun when you're 8 months pregnant huffing and puffing and can barely walk around)...

    She says things to me like "okay Miss Bossy" when I tell her to do something. She'll also say "don't talk to me like that....don't look at me....don't touch me....etc."....she also lies and tells Ed I hit her when I didn't. She has also started to lie about having to use the bathroom just to get out of time out or whatnot.  If I had to pinpoint a time she became a terror I'd say 2 1/2 or so....almost 3.  I hope my sweet kid comes back soon....just wanted to say you are SO not alone. Oh and I'd never lock her in the room for time out because she'd trash the place....we lock all the doors upstairs from the outside and then gate off the top of the stairs so all she has is a tiny little hallway with nowhere to go.

  • i'll trade if you want a 4 year old girl who seems to have already reached the peak of hormonal craziness and goes from crying and screaming one minute to telling me how much she loves me the next. in the last two days i've gone from mommy to mother, she's told me that she hates me and can't wait until she moves out, she tried hitting me (but got smart after seeing the look on my face), and the list goes on and on. i'm so tired of the attitude, brattiness and craziness that i'm on the verge of listing her on craigslist.

    Franco- I'm there and he's only 19 mo.  The hiting, the biting, throwing things....and not eating stuff he liked the day before. So frustrating.

    It's. Killing. Me.

    I feel you. Good luck.

  • I'm happy to trade, but it would be an even trade.  Oh, and add to it that she doesn't want her hair combed and screams through the whole thing.  And if you so much as suggest she wear pants or shorts that's a 1/2 hour tantrum... sometimes I can get a skirt instead of a dress.  The attitude lately is killing me and I have a feeling it''s just a taste of things to come.....

  • dh has already asked two of our pediatricians if Ava could be tested for mental disorders...we find the jekyll and hyde transition to be frightening.

    Stephanie has not told me she hates me....yet.  But I have already heard "you love my baby brother more than you love me". Where did she even come up with that? The kid has not been born yet.  It frightens me how they talk like they are adults!!!! I guess that's imitating us though.  She says things to me like "I am busy mommy you're going to have to wait" and "don't use that tone of voice with me". Oh and everything is "no you're....(insert whatever here)..." Like "Stephanie please calm down"..."No YOU calm down Mommy!"  Oh the brattiness and them thinking they're the Mother and you're the baby!

    I bought that book last month after a particularly bad day. I figured I've lost the battle on Age 3, might as well get a head start on age 4!

    Gabbs - my son does the same things as Stephanie! I could have written your posts.

  • See my post from this morning. Seriously 3 sucks the life out of me. I have no idea how people go through this more than like twice. Lol. I am already dreading baby #2 at age 3. Lol lol
  • My sweet angel will be 3 at the end of October lol . She goes through phases. Her new thing is to answer back to everything we say. This morning she screamed at me, "mom stop acting like a big lady" meaning an old lady - are u kidding me !! So I am already getting a taste of the wonderful 3s. Lol good luck to all of us .

  • OMG!! Jess i thought it was only my kid. This started 2 weeks ago when we were away and now he is a terror! Hits me, says he's mad at me and doesn't like me. And he'll be three in 2 months, oh boy!

  • If you want to trade for one that says shut up, one second, you go time out, your bad boy mommy and I even got a f*ck you once or twice but that got put to a stop with a big nestie no no.  Other than that he eats whatever you give him and loves to cuddle.

  • Yep.  I am right there with you. 

    CJ's new one is calling me "stoopid" and "schup up, mom"

    I love it when it is out in public!  Ugh!

  • Conner is 4 and so far, not much better than 3.  I'm hoping that it'll get better when he goes back to school. I've had enough!
