Hi My daughter name Aarika she is going to 3 yrs in March. My question is I got an feedback from her teacher that she hit each child in class and always distracted from her work. Although she is intelligent enough that she will complete her work but the thing is she is distracted child and always pull up hairs and slap other children in her class. When I ask to complete work she needs something like bribe. I feel so ashamed in front of teacher. Please give me some solution so that I can overcome her problem. As she is single child and always wants attention. please help me get rid with this issue. Thank you

I understand your concern. It looks that she has attention issues. Her energy has to be channelised with outdoor and indoor activities. Since she likes incentives you can make it better. Make a chart with columns. Set rules and cosmetics. Discuss them with her. Any good behaviour or on completion of work , reward her a star on the chart. Any misbehaving , complaint from school give a black mark. On Saturday calculate the number of black marks and stars. If she has five stars more than the number of black marks give her a little treat. Mention that she would have got the other treat of her black marks were not there. Repeat the same. At her age it has to be repetitive so that positive behaviour is enforced. If she cries or throws a tantrum please ignore. You have to move away from her when she behaves so. Come back to her later. Hug her and tell her you understand that she is upset. But there are other ways to express or to request. Tantrums would not get her anything. Help her understand this. Also observe when she gets triggered. It would be easy to help her label her feelings too.
