My DGD is now 3, I babysit her one day a week and have done since she was one and my DIL went back to work full time. My son then did a three day week for a time and she has had 2 days a week in nursery for most of her second year, she seems happy in nursery which is a very good one. The problem is that baby number 2 was born a couple of months ago. Ostensibly she seems to welcome the new arrival, but always wants to smother her with kisses.
However she is having worse and worse tantrums, the main problems are Monday and Friday when she is with my DIL or the weekends when she is with both her parents. With me she may have the occasional strop but nothing too serious and we gather it is fine at nursery. I realise that tantrums are normal with 3 year olds but these seem excessive and she will sometimes scream for a very long time, it generally starts with the most minor problem eg toast cut up wrong or wrong clothes offered. Many different tactics have been tried to distract her. When not in a tantrum she seems an extremely bright happy articulate toddler.
