3 year old saying he's sad and bad
Posted 03 December 2012 - 05:28 PM
My 3 and a half year old DS will often tell me that he's feeling sad. Maybe about twice a week? Usually its when Im saying goodnight to him in bed and so I always thought it was just stalling tactics as I'll give him big cuddles and talk to him etc but now Im starting to worry that he really is sad a lot???
He also often says that he is bad too. I tell him that he isn't bad that he is a very good boy. He is a very well behaved boy and shows empathy to other kids so Im not sure where all this is coming from?
When he says that he's sad or bad it breaks my heart, Im starting to worry that there might be something wrong with him? My pregnancy hormones aren't helping of course!
Any advice or similar situations out there?

IMO it's perfectly natural the DS would feel sad saying goodnight but have you asked him why he feels sad?

No advice here, but just so you don't feel alone in this, my niece is just turned 5, and her parents are concerned about how sad she says she is. Sometimes she gets a day off daycare just for a break, when her sister goes. I don't know what they're doing for it (I think they're hoping that school will help) but you're not the only one with a child saying that they're sad.

We don't have much of a problem with bad/naughty, unless you count them calling each other naughty and putting each other in time out.
