Sometimes kids say things just as they are. So if they find something annoying, they tell you straight up, no beating around the bush. This kid was clearly sick of hearing this specific song.
I was singing You Are My Sunshine to my 3 year old and he told me he hates that song. I said that’s a shame because I use to sing it to him when he was in my tummy before he was born and he looked me dead in the eyes and said “I hated it then too”.— Al (@AliceTaylorM) December 12, 2021

When kids are getting fed up with their mom making sure they aren’t running off. They will find the darndest things to say.
I took my 5 year old and 3 year old to the zoo last week. I’m heavily pregnant. My eldest wandered a bit ahead and 3yo said “don’t worry mummy, if we lose him, you’ve got another baby in your tummy. There will still be two” when I said I’d rather keep all 3 he replied “why?”— Wirral Wanderer (@Wirral_Walker) July 2, 2021

I set out a suitcase to pack for my flight later today and spotted my 3 year old crawling inside it to hide. I casually zipped it up, yelled “I’M OFF TO THE AIRPORT, EVERYBODY!”, and carried it to the car. I’ve circled the block twice and my luggage hasn’t stopped laughing. pic.twitter.com/c6XVPMtOlF— Henpecked Hal (@HenpeckedHal) June 25, 2021

Living with a Three-year-old
Living with grown humans can be tough because not all of us get along. But imagine living with a three-year-old that has. Minimal emotional control, let alone maturity. We can forgive the tiny humans though because this is where they are learning the most valuable skills in interaction. After reading the hilarious Tweets, here are some tips on how to handle a bossy and dependent toddler.
One thing to remember is that your Three-year-old is going to copy everything you do. So if they surprise you, take stock of your own behavior. They are also extremely independent. They are sick and tired of their parents doing everything for them. So, if you hand your child a packet of chips, let them open it. Fight the urge to do it for them.
Next, three-year-olds have tiny bodies, but massive emotions. They don’t always have the means to process their feelings except have a flail-on-the-floor and scream-blue-murder tantrum. This is normal. Don’t try to teach them while they’re in this mode. Rather wait for them to be calm to talk about ways to control anger.
