Blogging Friends, I need some advice. Jaxon is normally a very good natured, happy, friendly little boy. He plays nicely with the kids at his babysitter's house. He says hello and talks to people in stores. He is polite to other kids on at the park, birthday parties and get togethers. The problem is at Gymboree. A few weeks ago I noticed that whenever another kid would come up to Jaxon he would give them the stink eye and yell, NO! Kids at Gymboree can't even get on the same play structure as him without getting yelled at by him. I just don't get it. Why so nice in other situations, but not so with his peers. These are the kids he is going to be in kindergarten with. I am so afraid he is going to be that kid I have in my classroom each year who is intolerant to his classmates. I know very well that Jax isn't perfect. I mean he has at least 5 tantrums a day at home. He tells me NO every other minute, but at home it's fine. I can deal with it here, it's when we are out that I want him to be a pleasant young man.
What do I do?? Please help. Is this just a stage of the famous terrible twos (which started at 18 months in our house!) Have your kids gone through this? Please leave me a comment with some helpful advice or even a reassurance that he's normal!
Here's the stink eye... followed by NO!
