Is 5 a hard age?

Is five a difficult age? I feel like all my kid does is whine to get his way all day; I have no peace for more than a minute. I’m starting to doubt my parenting skills, and I’m very unhappy. I’m not really looking for advice, I guess I just want to know if I’m the only one feeling this way?

It can be a tough age especially in 2020. These kids are having adult issues put on them. On top of that, they are not babies but, not teenagers. My 5 and 6 year old are figuring out they are independent people. Yet still need help with stuff.

My 2 year old daughter is this EVERY F**KING DAY :joy:

Yes! My 5 year old is SO whiney all the time now :tired_face::tired_face::tired_face:

They’ll grow out of it. Just sucks in the moment. Something new comes with every age. Personally, I hated 4. Lol

My 5 year old and I butt heads like no other!! It is so frustrating at times. My 7 year old has an attitude and acts as if she’s 13, and my almost two year old is cling AF!

I dislike the ages 4-6ish

My 5 year old is going to be 6 in 3 weeks. He didn’t have the terrible 2s or horrendous 3s… but 5… 5 has been the HARDEST year. You are doing great!

My 3 year old grandson is the same way.

Every age is hard. I can confirm this up to age 10.

I’ve learned that the most difficult ages seem to be 2, 5, & 17.

I think all ages are like this :woman_facepalming::rofl:

My 5 year old seems to have skipped this or got it all out during the freaking threenager stage. She whines here and there, but not as often as what I’m reading in comments lol.

My son turned 5 in July and I can notice a huge difference in him … very mature … now I’m not saying he’s perfect but he’s certainly getting better and I enjoy it more :revolving_hearts:

I had a hard time with my son at 5. He’s come a long way from that behavior now and he’s 6.5
