This is common. My wife and I thought we were the world's best parents because our son was so well-behaved --until he turned two. Then we were ashamed to take him anywhere. Something that really helped was finding a good preschool program. Even though my wife was at home with our son, the chance for him socialize regularly with peers was crucial. We ...

One additional viewpoint: I have a three year old who sometimes is similar (also with his younger brother), and one piece of advice I've been given that I think rings true: if he's having trouble sharing or playing with others, it may be a cry for more time or space of his own. This is both time and space literally on his own - toys that he does not have ...

Great advice on the other answer. Just to expand a bit. Seems like he doesn't know how to express himself. Try to figure out why he doesn't want to share, and how to explain it properly to the other kid. "We do not push other people, I can see that you are mad/afraid. Why are you mad?

For a 2-year old screaming, hitting or even biting is a normal way to express his anger - at least he will try and every success reinforces ...

In at least one way, TV is harmful to an infant - every minute spent watching is a minute lost to other, better activities. I guaranty your child would rather watch and listen to you than to the TV. Try putting her in one of those bouncy-relining seats on the counter while you cook or clean, and narrate your activities. You'll be amazed how entertaining ...

I have allowed my little girl to watch TV on and off pretty much since she was born. This has only ever been for short periods though as I am not a big TV watcher myself. I have always interacted with her during watching TV and talked to her about what's on the screen etc. She's just coming up to 2 now and has moved up to the next class in nursery a ...

My nurse told me do not let the child watching TV before 2 years old and then limited the time for the to watching. The over-stimulation may cause attention problem for them later on. The research shows that watching TV in the early age causes child suffer from ADHD in the early school. But I find it is difficult nowadays for us not using tablet, phone and ...

The key here isn't television. That is an artifact of the environment. The issue is parents who neglect their children for hours on end which incidentally creates a situation where the kids may watch TV for extended periods. It doesn't matter if the parents watch TV all day themselves also, that's just another form of disregarding your children. Watching ...

This worked for my kids about the same age - Would you like to add it to your wish list (wish list is something they wanted and would pull out the list for birthdays and holidays) Sure you can have it. Did you bring your money? - If they insist you buy it with your money then go into the my money needs to be used for food, house, car etc.
