Often, around age 1 ½ to 3, children’s behavior becomes newly challenging and parents may wonder, “Who is this child?” Three year olds, and those approaching three, begin to fiercely assert their independence, while at other times they cling to adults and want help with tasks they have been able to do on their own for months. They can have BIG emotions that will frequently change, shifting from gleeful to devastated to furious within minutes. These characteristics make them like teenagers: hence the term “threenagers.” If your child is in this age range or you are anticipating its onset, join us to learn about this stage of development and what is going on with your child, as well as some ways to manage his or her behavior.
