hi everyone, im nadia, new here, and had this peculiar thought in my head that i was an okay parent.. that was until i met my daughter,lol! we call her miss diva.. i was doing some research to find out how common it is for a two year old to draw exceptionally well, and even write letters..and came upon some information about gifted kids, and suddenly ALL her quirky behaviour was explained..even the info on dabrowski's sensitivities, everything made perfect sense, finally.. she reached all her milestones early so far, and gets along well with her peers, but even better with children two to three years older than herself. she is nearly three now, and draws (according to loads of internet research) at the level of a 4/5 year old. she writes more than half the alphabet,she's starting to read, and her vocabulary+pronunciation etc, at level of five year old. she is very intelligent and has a creative mind. problem is this: from things ive read here, it definitely seems that she has a load of ODD traits going too. its hard to tell, because she is only three. so it might be 'normal' behaviour, but i am exhausted in dealing with her each day. i am a calm consistent type of parent, but the whining, oh my word, the whining.. she is super headstrong, and very specific about what she wants, how she wants it done, by who, and when. her tantrums are very rare, because i do not tolerate them, but the whining and crying constantly is getting me down. any advice?
