Renee Hello Anne,

I also work with 3-4 year olds. I have a number of "difficult" preschoolers in my group. It sounds like you've tried many things. I would be frustrated too. I'm just wondering whether or not you have the parents support? Are they backing you up and following through with consequences at home. Sometimes that makes all ...See More
