I am having a similar issue with my 3 year old daughter. It seems like she’ll just give up as soon as she starts something that she perceives as hard, and she’ll say she can’t do it. And no amount of empathy or problem solving on my part seems to help. She is just so sure that it’s impossible. I’d love to have guidance for these moments. I just want to help her through it, and I can’t seem to figure out the best method for us.
