How To Control His Anger - A Three Year Old Boy
How are you mam?
I would like to post a question regarding my 3 year old son. I and my husband both are working. My Mother in law and Father in law are taking care of my son. We all live in a joint family.
When I get back from the office (after 6) I am the one who takes care of my son. He is going to a preschool for his Pre Kindergarten.
My son is usually a calm little guy, a little bit shy with strangers. Normally he is very good at home, he can grasp things very quickly, can listen very well and he is having a very good memory power.
But he is very adamant in some cases, for example if his grandfather is sitting in a sofa he will demand for him to get up since he wants to use the sofa as a pretend car to drive.
The main issue is yesterday he beat one of his his classmates, a girl. His preschool Mam was very upset and she has beat him it seems.
But the School Mam didn't inform me about this but she was very angry with my son which was noticed by my husband. Normally it is his father that takes him to the school. Today I went to the school and I asked about how my son is behaving, just like I would on a normal visit.
The School Mam told me that he was behaving very differently for the past one week. Normally he wouldn't beat others and he was the calmest boy in the class. I was surprised why he is behaving like this and she told me that normally he will be very friendly with girls but particularly for the past one week he is beating up the girls.
Apart from this he is very excellent in his academic side & very good at activities, dance etc.
I can also feel nowadays he is not listening to our words in most of the occasions.
My husband told me that he (our son) seems to be enjoying when others get affected. For example if he climbs over us roughly and we say "hey it is hurting, please get down" it means he will not get down and does it more.
I need your kind help and suggestion Mam. I would be very pleased if you can answer my question and suggest me a good way to deal with this.
