is 3 years old to young to try and find out if there is a behaviarol problem with my daughter? She is constant nonstop and never stays on anything for long i know its hard for little ones but our biggest issues is zero lisening and straight out diffiance . she will litrally look you straight in the eyes and do what you have just told her not to do . we have tried every thing with this little girl and i swear most days she is more work then her 4.5 yr old brother that has ASD and advice as we are not familiar with the ADD/ADHD/ODD world thanks for any help

Since my daughter was 2 years she has been hard work. She has 2 older brothers 7yrs and almost 6yrs, she also has a baby brother 10months old. My daughter is very stubborn, bossy and can be extreMily rude. She does what she wants when she wants and if I don't allow her then that's it she is screaming, telling me she will/she is and then she starts hitting out at every1.her brothers, me. It's so bad when we are in the street and she refuses to walk I grab her hand and she screams at the top of her voice 'don't drag on me' and she is crying and it breaks my heart. I'm seriously struggling with her behaviour. She will be 3 next month and starting part time nursery in September so I'm praying that she calms down a lot. My daughter is very clever and can be very indapendant so maybe nursery will allow her to use those and turn it to a positive.

I have noticed being a daycare teacher that a child with siblings that have behavioral or disabilities issues tend to act out at that age to try to get attention. 3 years old is usually the age that the school districts offer a para program to asses children for behavioral or disabilities issues. I have 4 step children 2 children of my own and one one the way and they are all different in their own way. I have found as long as everyone is treated equally and not given excuses for their behavior things go pretty smooth. Examples of excuses, oh she is just tire or she has had a long day or they don't feel well. I wish you the best of luck.
