She bobs her head when she gets disturbed in her sleep...she started doing this when she was still in her crib around 5-6 months old if i remember and has not stopped. When she gets upset or nervous she starts doing it. Its almost like she has a nervous tick and my 3 yr old is so hard to talk to or confront about her behavior she asks kimberly my 2 yr old to do everything for her. If I ask my older child to do something she starts getting Kimberly to do it, Throw away her trash or anything else. I am beside myself with my older childs behavior and dis-attached type behavior i have three daughters ages 3,2,1 they are only around me and their dad (we are together)and they dont go to a babysitter or daycare etc the older two have been presenting just odd behavior and i have a headache just trying so hard to figure outwhat. Could be causing this type behavior sorry for spelling im using my cell i have asked their doctor and she suggested therapy
Your two-year-old's behavior does not invite concern. I'm not sure your three-year-old's behavior invites concern, either, to be honest. Certainly therapy is not at all indicated for children this age (if the doctor means psychological therapy). If you need help managing the three-year-old's behavior, read Lynn Clark's book about behavior management. It is called SOS Help for Parents (see www.sosprograms.com).
