Little dude looks sweet and cute right??
He is a dictator.
He declares what he wants and expects his wishes to be obeyed forthwith. Heaven help whom ever does not understand what he is saying. Because he knows exactly what he is saying.
Inspector Gadget! NOW. Paw Patrol! STAT!
There are a lot of sayings about terrible 2's but 3's are really hard. They know what they want, they can communicate it somewhat, and they are more determined so you can't try and distract them with something really cool (well you can-- and they may even humor you- but they will be back for what they initially wanted).
Three year olds can run the house if you let them. Sometimes that is all that keeps my sanity--- LittleDude wants Chuggers?! Fine! He gets Chuggers.. Learn picking battles is half of being a parent. I frequently tell the bigger kids to just give him what he wants so he will stop holding the house hostage with screams.
Logically- I know that 3 years is a huge developmental time and he is beginning to see the world does not revolve around him. He is learning that wants do not always equal needs. Which can be a hard pill for a three year old to swallow.
