This might be a crazy thought, but have you had his hearing checked? I have a good friend whose son was very sweet but got frustrated and angry easily. He's a very bright kid and was able to 'outsmart' several early hearing tests. He could hear enough to get by, the only real sign was speech delay. He was a much happier kid after he got his hearing aids.
I just wondered if he was reading your or your husbands lips when you're alone with him, but when everyone's around he can't keep up and gets frustrated. I don't know how to explain him doing well in preschool though. I'm probably wrong, but just something to think about as what you describe sounds a lot like the problems my friend was having with her child.

In SOME ways I get what you say as I USED to sort of feel the same way!!! That these Out of Control kids NEEDED Discipline!!! What you don't know IS that for SOME reason, NO kind of discipline works on SOME kids!!! It goes MUCH DEEPER than that!!! Super Nanny has some great ideas yes and for MANY kids her ideas work, BUT; for SOME "Special" kids nothing seems to work!!!

I also have a 14 yr old son, he was easy to raise, discipline etc. Time Out, 1-2-3 worked on him till he was 11. To this day, at 14 he knows what is right wrong & what is gonna get him in BIG Time Crap!!! I never would've imagined that I could have a child be the way my 3 yr old is!!! It's NOT lack of discipline!!! AND; NO we do NOT give in or cave to shut him up!!! NO is NO is Always NO!!! Some kids have BIGGER ISSUES than what you are saying!!!

You have until he is 5, but if you don't fix him before then, you're really going to have a situation. God help you when he turns 14.

I have a dear friend who has seven of the most perfect children I have ever laid eyes on. When they misbehave they get a "whuppin'" Needless to say after once or twice, they do not misbehave any longer. Of course, the mother has never worked and spends all her time being a mom.

It shows.

Unfortunately in this day and age everyone has to work, I'm sure all mommy's would love to be home with their children it's just not possible. My husband and I make a "comfortable" living, enough to maintain our own home, cars and extras. Even then we both still have to work. So your lucky "friend" is either very comfortable to stay home with 7 children or living off the dime of the hardworking people who cannot be home with their own children trying to give them a better life.
Not all children are built the same way, some are more challenging than others. I'm sure your friend has methods of discipline she doesn't divuldge to avoid judgment.
Shame on you opening your mouth with no children/experience of your own, who are you to judge. 20 yrs anywhere has obviously given you no sense at all.

Default Not enough sleep?

When you all say not enough sleep for an out of control 3yr old, what do you do when they quit taking naps, wont go to sleep until 9:30 (even if they are in the bed by 7 or 8) and are up and wide awake at 6am?

I absolutely agree with you cookalamb, most people have to work and/or have special circumstances, (my husband and I are raising a 3yr old and 1yr old grandsons) and sometime children have special needs. If you don't have children or grands, you must not assume!!!
