I am a mother to three children and my middle child who is four years old is demanding all of my attention. He frustrates his brother and sister by teasing and annoying them and throws temper tantrums when he gets into trouble for it. Nothing I’m doing is working!
I’m so embarrassed but my child care provider called me in to say my two-year-old has been biting other children. I hate to think what the other parents must be thinking. What do I do?
Reaching out for help when you’re a parent means looking to organisations or services with a range of expertise or the means to assist. Whether it’s government payments or a specialised support service, sometimes you just need to ask.
