Ethel, it may be an idea to have a chat to her teacher. Generally a teacher may have some insight into any problems. Talk to her teacher about what your daughter has been telling you, and her tantrums before school and hopefully the teacher may have some ideas and be able to watch out and report back to you. I have always found that teachers are more than happy to co-operate with parents in getting to the root of any issues (well, that's been my experience anyway).

My soon to be 3 year old cries everyday before going to daycare/preschool. I don't know what to do because the first week he did fine. I ask him of some has hurt him and says no. he does how ever say he wants me to stay with him. I get very.upset over this. I'm lost and don't know how to handle this.

As a Single mom with a teenager son working full time preparing food for them it is hard sometime. I think Shakira feel insecure because she was used to having her father as part of her life since she was a baby. I'm in two now my teenager boy thinks I'm doing more for Shakira tehn for him

I think I will do this because at first I just thought that she is the new child normally they will be picked but, everyday when we have our talk time she mentions that certain children wants to hit her or fight with her

Oh, I want to add, this is my daughter's first year of full time school, and I think a big part of her tantrums is the attention she no longer gets during the day. last year she was only in pre-school 2 days a week, and I know from what she spends her time doing on weekends and after school, that she misses being at home and having her special time with me and her dad, so we try to go out of our way to have special time with her at least every weekend, but also for a little time every evening, as little as it may be because we do have to share it around :)

What is your response to the tantrums? Generally this is why kids continue with it - because it gets them the attention they seek. Try ignoring the tantrum and make her do what you ask - whether it's going to bed or going to school.

My daughter throws a tantrum before going to school every day too - it is usually because she wants to finish something, or wants something at the last minute. It is a total attention getter. She is getting better because I disregard it, march her to the car regardless, and suggest she may want to stop before we get to school or her friends will see her carrying on like this.

Admittedly, she doesn't do tantrums at bedtime, but that is the end of the day she has had a lot of attention....the mornings are rushed and she doesn't like to be rushed.

It is a bit hard to tell from your post, because you haven't given much information. What is he throwing the tantrums over, is there a particular trigger? Is he enjoying school? Are you rushing him? Do you have a set routine?

Is there something or someone at school bothering him?
and being over tired can make kids go into melt down perhaps try going into his room an hour or half an hour for relaxing time , read stories together or listen to soft music together to make bedtime a peaceful and enjoyable time for him .
