Good news for parents of Three-Year-Olds:

Your Child’s desire to be independent and to test authority is normal and healthy.

Practical love and logic can make this age more fun for parents.

If you parent really well during the first three years of life, chances are your child will become a responsible teenager who is fun to be around.

And always remember–

The best predictor of an out-of-control teenager is a three-year-old who runs the house.

(Now I just have to keep telling myself this and my sanity won’t go out the window either–right??)

This post is dedicated to my energy crazed 3-year-old son Caleb–who makes me smile at least once a day!
