Please help me !!!! I am a single mom of 3 little girls their ages are 7, 3, & 2 . My 7 year old is so well behaved and such a help and my 3 year old is the exact opposite she is horrible she hardly listens she back talks she pretty much won't listen to me at all... yet she listens at daycare dance class and church she is starting to cause the baby to act out too... it's so stressful and I feel like a bad mom cause I feel like I am constantly correcting her... How can I show her that behaving will get her more positive attention then not .

She is 3. Your other child is 7. Why are you expecting your 3 year old to act like your 7 year old? She is 3. She needs constact correction and redirection. She also needs to know when she is doing the right thing. Every time she is doing the right thing, tell her she is doing awesome. But do NOT compare your 7 year old and 3 year old. They are not comparable.
