Small children need much more love, support and acceptance than adults do. They can cry when they feel lonely or forgotten. But letís be honest and admit it Ė they are not just cute pretty angels all the time.
As far as I know, when children of this age are capricious and naughty, itís very often because they try to manipulate their parents and get whatever they want. In this case, you should remember some simple rules. You should explain to your child (or grandchild) what they have done wrong; be consistent in upbringing rules; build non-verbal borders; keep calm (one of the hardest things from the list, right?); focus your childís (or grandchildís) attention on whatís around them before they start demanding a thing and crying. Also, I believe teaching them responsibility and independence is another crucial thing. These aspects should be learnt in a fun, playful manner. For example, teaching them how to ride a bike could be one of good solutions. Several weeks ago I bought my nephew a bicycle and he absolutely adores it! I did not really know how to choose the right bike, but I found a helpful web-site [url]https://cutelittledarling.com/best-bike-for-2-year-olds/[/url] that has got lots of information, including bike detailed descriptions and comparison. In short, I chose a bicycle with an amazing design for a reasonable price. Itís also lightweight, easy to ride and control, very comfortable due to the seat and helpful mini grips. Besides, the tires are made of a good long-lasting material which is essential for long exciting rides.
You could look it through and find out more: who knows, maybe it will help in making your grandson more obedient. Best of luck!

I believe there is some sort of disorder present as I have 2 other children and neither acted this way. I am going to take her to a neurodevelopmental pediatrician for evaluation. This can't be normal. She is beginning to disrupt our entire house hold. My two older children can't sleep because of all the noise. I really love my husband but have considered moving out for the sake of my other children. Any advice?
Figure out why she is afraid to go to bed.

Fix it.

Former neighbors were raising their grandkids.

The kids were a handful. Busted everything they could get their hands on. Fought like badgers.

Part of it was that they had not learned to behave appropriately. The other part is that they were scared. Their parents had abandoned them and their grandparents were an iffy proposition.

The oldest one suspected they were headed to foster care like his cousins.

Our neighbors had done a poor job of raising their kids and now were even less capable of raising their grandkids.

They have since moved away. I hope things worked for them, but don't hold a lot of hope.
