Remember this, there is no child on Gods green earth that was put here to run my life. I am in charge and always will be. The sooner you drive this point home the better. At birth would be best. By the time they are 3 there should be no issues with behavior.

You're saying that at 3, a child should mind their manners, never have a meltdown, always listen and just be a perfect little angel all the time? At 3, there should be no issues with behavior?
Wow. . .must be nice to have kids like that.

Childhood is a time to push boundaries, to push your parents and see how close you can get to breaking the rules. I have never met ANYONE of ANY age who was perfectly behaved all of the time.
Sometimes kids don't sleep well, or miss their nap and get cranky. It happens. I know I get snappy when I don't sleep well. I also get grumpy when I'm hungry or bored. Kids have a MUCH lower tolerance for stuff like that.

I do know that some parents just brush off bad behavior and blame it on something that actually has nothing to do with the behavior. I realize that. Sometimes it's embarrassment. Other times it's a scapegoat.

But I don't care how good of a parent you are or how well you control your kids, no one is going to be perfectly behaved ALL of the time, especially not a child.

If you have done your job as a parent and kept in mind you are training a person not just raising a child. You should have few to no discipline problems. I have proven my method in my two grown children, and my five grandchildren. I also did day care for ten years caring for 4 three year olds by myself. Their parents couldn't believe change in behavior in a few weeks. So stop telling me your BRAT is tired.
