Our daughter is an only child, and I am a stay at home wife. She turned three in June and we are starting to have some difficulties separating her from our interactions as husband and wife during the evenings and weekends. We believe kids should respect their elders, and should not be allowed unlimited access to us/ our lives as a married couple. It is difficult when she has my attention all day long, and I shift into being a wife when my husband comes home. How can we calmly, but firmly handle her attention seeking, outbursts, tantrums when she isn’t the centre of attention in the evenings/ when my husband and I are trying to talk or do a task?
