HI! I'm new! My daugther Zoe is 3/15/07! Does anyone else have a child with a HUGE attitude? My daughter can get very fresh saying things like "get out of here" and "go away" when i go to get her in the morning. Or she tell me "i dont want you to talk" if i'm telling her something she doesnt like. I just want to know if any other March babies have this personality or if i'm just "lucky". Any suggestions?

My Emily was born 3-15 -07 and you just described her to a T. She is all attitude. I think it's a girl thing because my son who is 4 was never like this.

MyMarch 20, 2007 son is very stubborn. Not in daycare, has great grandparents looking after him, but refuses to pick up after himself and when I say no to something he ignores me and asks daddy, drives me crazy. Has to be a March thing. lol

Very STRONG personality! My March 07 daughter, Addison, is the same. Super stubborn with an outrageous temper (or extremely sweet and helpful).

nope my daughter was born march 15 2007 too and she is really really stuborn. some months shes good and others well shes so fussy and wants her own way that i just want to run. I realised the best thing to do when shes in one of those moods is nto to give her whta she wants, although that may result in screaming and crying you can put her in time out and eventually it will work and she will behave well but if shes like my child it will only work for a while. It can be very stressful tho, i thought i was the only one with a child who is mean to me lol

my daughter gets really sassy too! tells me not to sing during certain songs or dance! : ) Sometimes I'll just say "i dont like it when you talk to me like that" OR I'll dance like crazy until she laughs! ...I try to think from her perspective. Kids are having to follow our rules and schedules so much that it must be hard for them, so I try to let her make lots of simple decisions, like red or pink socks... banana or apple... help her feel some control. But it is so frustrating when she gets so stubborn!!!

lol my daughter has the exact same bday as your daughter and she is very out spoken as well. what i do when she is like that i just leave her be. in the morning my daughter no i like to be talked to so we just lay in bed for a while and "wake up" then she hits the milk and i the oj lol. my little one has a lot of her time and she enjoys playing by herself and having privacy in her room with her toys (door open of course). if she gets too snippy talkin then she does get a time out. i really see it as her pushing her 2 year old boundaries and im hopefull that it will end sooner rather then later. just be consistant with your disapline plan and show her that its unacceptable to talk to a grown up like that. i also make my daughter appologize after her time outs to who she talks mean to.

haha. I just posted the same sort of situation. My daughter has a teenager attitude and she is only 2. It drives me crazy!! Some things she says are funny and cute, but then she talks back - says no - yells - tantrums - attitude - and so on.

My boy was born 14th March and he is so like this!
I work but he stays home with his dad. When he does something naughty and his dad scolds him, he tells him to 'calm down and take a big breath'!
He also tells me not to talk to daddy when he wants to talk..
He was being so stubborn the other day and when I came out with 'I said no!' and he sais ''I say yes!' I told him he had to listen to me because I was the boss, and he would not accept it, saying he was the boss!

Yes, you are not alone! My daughter was born 3/24/07 and she is just now starting to go through her "terrible twos". She is extremely stubborn, and I kind of figured she would be. I attributed it to her being born under the Aries sign and only feel this way because her great-grandmother shares the same sign and almost the same birthday and is very stubborn. Now, she does not say disrespectful things to me, but she does things "her own way" and sometimes in her own time! The not-so-funny thing is that she ONLY cries with me...

Luckily, we haven't had any of these issues. I'll get an occassional "no" from someone, but that's really it. Our kids aren't in daycare and I think that is helping. They do all have huge attitudes and strong personalities, but they just don't get mouthy with us. Honestly, our biggest attitude problem has been from our 8 yr old. Her attitude set in big time when she started school! Prior to that she was very sweet, easy-going, and cooperative.

Granted my son has picked up some new vocabulary from his friends at daycare but the delivery is all him !!!! I know for sure that nothing is going on behind closed doors at my sons daycare because I work there as well. He is just a strong willed/ sometimes mean and evil little boy and it maybe it does have something to do with his zodiac sign. Last weekend he said "Come on Mommy! Don't be stupid!! and often tells me "Don't look at me!", Don't Sing Mommy!" but our new unfavorite is "I Kill you!!"

My daughter was born march 14th and she doesn't do anything if i had to guess most of those kids are in daycare...If so I would be checking up at the daycare and see what is going on behide closed door. I meet alot of moms at McDonalds that say they had to change daycares because of their childs behavior.

I don't have any suggestions because my son is the same way. It's gotta be the March thing, LOL. My son was born 03/07/2007. He is horrible sometimes with telling me things like "I don't want to", "I don't feel like it," and my personal favorite when I ask him to pick up his toys at nite before bed he says "Umm, maybe later." Dylan has also told me to go away and not to look at him. These are all phrases that he has not heard from his father or I so it has to be the March 2007 thing, lol. and he can be so mean, hitting and screaming. I just don't understand it, it makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong.

This sounds so familiar! In our case, my son says these things to me more than to my husband. He'll often tell me that he and his papa are going to do something and that I'm not allowed or tell me to be quiet when I'm talking to my hubby.

I am really trying to choose my battles with this though, b/c I think it's important for him to feel that father/son bond. However, when he's rude to me or out of line, I tell him that's not a nice thing to say and if he persists he gets a timeout.

YES. My daughter's pediatrician says it's common and it just means he/she is very strong minded, which is good in the long run! I just let me daughter know, in a stern but sweet voice, when she needs to stop. It usually works for me!

My daughter is the same way, she tells you I'll beat your butt, Don't touch me, Leave me alone, Stop it and the list goes on. I thought I was the only one for along time with a very stubborn child, my son who was also born in March, was never that way.

[deleted account]

I guess we are both lucky because I am in the same boat. My daughter uses the term "go away" often. Or just grunts at me when I talk to her and gives me the mean eyebrow look. I am just hoping it's a phase and she will grow out of it. Maybe it's a gril thing- attitude :-)
