ABSTRACT
Preschoolers revel in their newfound independence. They delight in deciding which friends to play with in the sandbox or whether to build a zoo or a farm with their blocks. Being able to make such choices is a natural part of growing up and it gives threes and fours an exciting sense of themselves as powerful people. Although assertiveness is a healthy part of growing up, you might sometimes feel annoyed when your preschooler is defiant. It's important to understand the reasons for your child's behavior, while finding ways to make sure her assertiveness does not place her in physical jeopardy or hurt others' feelings.
