If it’s any help, I have the same problem with my 3.5 year old. If she doesn’t like what I’m saying, or is focussed on something else, she just pretends not to hear. This seems to get worse when she’s tired. (She dropped her day sleeps at 18 months, but still REALLY needs them, especially after playgroup or kindergym). I try kneeling down so that we’re at the same level, and ask her to look me in the eye while I repeat what I have said. This works sometimes…. Any hints would be appreciated!
