Please help me! My 3 year old son is a very sweet boy, who I believe tries to be good, but has a real problem with authority. He was home with me for almost 3 years before he & his younger brother started daycare this past August. He's always had a problem with not listening to what he's told, but lately he's gotten much worse! I know he's only 3, but am worried if something doesn't happen to make him listen soon, he'll only get worse the older he gets. His teacher says he's easily distracted, sometimes refuses to sit still & participate w/his class & causes other kids to follow his behavior and talks back! I can't take him anywhere without him throwing a fit to have his way and causing a scene! I've tried time outs, they just don't work w/him. I've tried EVERYTHING!! My husband is worried that he may be hyper active, but I refuse to drug my little man. I've mentioned all of this to the pediatrican, but he feels he's a perfectly normal 3 year old. Does anyone have any experience w/any of this?
