Probably every parent heard about the two-year-old's rebellion. On the notorious difficult period for the patience of parents falling between 18 and 30 months of the child's life a lot of articles were created. What happens next? After all, a child is growing, and with it development challenges and problems also grow.

Little is said that after a two-year-old revolt, a three-year-old revolt may come, and after some time a six-year-old may come.

In preschool, child development is very dynamic, so you need to be prepared for many changes, often manifested in difficult behaviors. Here they are.

Three and a half years

The average three-year-old is a sweet little one with whom spending time is pure pleasure. A child after a turbulent period of two and a half years becomes a charming and grateful observer, willing to help parents and to play actively. The three-year-old eagerly plays, shares toys, in order to please someone, he is willing to cooperate until he is going through another crisis.

When a child is three and a half years old, his coordination deteriorates, patience and readiness to play fall according to pre-defined rules. The toddler becomes jealous and wants exclusivity from his parents, siblings or lady in kindergarten. The toddler is inclined again to extreme emotions, hysteria, is more irritable and less cooperative. At this stage, the child may stop accepting the known agenda and refuse to go to kindergarten.

Four years

Four-year-old children are said to be hungry for movement, that they are extremely active, everywhere full of them. They don't stop for a moment, they talk a lot, ask as many questions, sing, play what they want and have a great need to check their body's abilities. The huge need for movement is often associated with hyperactivity, inability to sit still, irritating spinning, which often leads to confusion in parent-child contacts.

A four year old needs clear rules, consistent rules and lots of love, to deal with the challenges that life presents to him every day.

You have to be ready for that the four-year-old will be afraid of being abandoned by his parents. It may even fear the death of a parent, sometimes the quality of sleep is deteriorating, and the child has trouble falling asleep. After about half a year, an active four-year-old calms down a bit, is more willing to do manual work, and can focus on doing artistic work longer. After this time comes a period of relative calm when the child turns five. During this period, it is usually trouble-free, open to cooperation and staring at parents.

Six years

He often takes the place of a sweet and agreeable five-year-old stubborn and negative attitude to the world of six-year-olds. A child of this age automatically reacts with opposition, falls into extreme emotions and externalises everything that happens inside him. Just look at a child of this age to quickly find out what his mood is. Every day, she manages the child's world impulsiveness, excitability, mobility and high emotionality. At this stage, the ability to restrain emotions and control their expression is only being shaped.

The six-year-old becomes ambitious, likes to check how much he can afford. Unfortunately, he is missing patience, I want to have everything right away, learn something quickly and be the best at it. This unfortunately raises frustration. This is very clearly seen during team games in which the competition begins. six-year-old child he is very sensitive to losing, he cannot accept the fact that someone else has proved better.

A six-year-old child experiences an "emotional crisis", experiences strong, extreme emotions, is hardly immune to criticism and failure, and needs motivation by receiving praise and encouragement.

How to support the child's development?

First of all through observation and following the child. It is worth trying different things, but focus on those that give the child the most joy. Let the child spend time on what brings him pleasure, seeing his own progress, builds confidence.
