I have a Preschooler

"Preschoolers" describes children between the ages of three and five years old. Children in this age group are making developmental strides and are curious about the world around them. They want to touch, taste, smell, hear, and test things for themselves. They are eager to learn. They learn by experiencing and by doing. Preschoolers learn from their play. They are busy developing skills, using language, and struggling to gain inner control. They can express their needs since they have greater command of language.

Preschoolers are trying to establish themselves as their own person, separate from their parents. You can expect preschoolers to test you over and over again, to use inappropriate language and to act very silly. Preschoolers may still have trouble getting along with other children and sharing may still be difficult. Preschoolers need clear and simple rules so that they know the boundaries of acceptable behavior.

With their imaginations still developing, preschoolers may have trouble telling fantasy from reality. They may also have imaginary friends. Fears often develop during the preschool years. Common fears include new places and experiences and separation from parents and other important people.
