What is 3 age syndrome?
The biggest causes of the 3-year-old syndrome in children are the realization that the child is now an individual and is growing up. The child now has the thought that he can do whatever he wants and does everything independently of the mother and father. He does not agree to get help from the mother and father because he sees himself as an adult and strives for the family to accept it. He thinks that he has his own thoughts, desires and must do them. During this period, these attitudes of the child are called 3 age syndrome.

Duties of parents in 3 years syndrome
Parents have big duties in the 3-year syndrome. First of all, it is important to approach the child calmly. In the moments of the child’s crying and anger crisis, it should be tried to speak to him calmly and if the child does not calm, the speech should be stopped and the child should be removed for a while. A child who wants to do whatever he / she wants should not be done whatever he / she wants and should be understood and explained calmly. Children who harm things and their surroundings should be warned immediately with a sharp expression and should not be treated softly against this attitude. A child who is 3 years old can now communicate with his parents and understand what they are saying. In this case, it is absolutely necessary to remain calm and talk. Because when you get angry, your child’s anger will increase.
