sometimes my only child feels like 3 in 1

Lalie is 3 years and 9 months, I cannot have more children, I reached my menopause period at 28, I'm 30 now and struggle to cope with my symptoms and raise an alone toddler together. She is a real challenge and tests me every single day..... It is difficult for her to cope in a crowd and share with her friends. Sometimes she gets aggressive and yell sand screams ALLOT. But at the same time she can be the most fun and lovable child, I love her soooooo much!

I think Lalie sounds like a typical only child at her age. Children at this age can be tough, actually children at any age can be tough! LOL. It is normal for little ones to have issues when anything is out of the ordinary or different from what they are use to. We had Easter service at our sister church and my youngest who is 2 1/2 was horrible and she is normally very good in church as we were leaving she screamed at the top of her lungs "I never coming back here again!!" We were embarrassed, everyone else thought it was funny and the pastor said "don't worry, we've all been there. Different situation than what she is use to and she had a meltdown perfectly normal although embarrassing. It is also very normal not to want to share. She is still the center of her own universe and what is hers is hers and what is someone else's is hers if she wants it. All you can really do is be consistent and patient; this like everything else will pass!

This sounds like a typical behavior for the toddler...Just keep on being patient and gently correct or distract her.
