In brief: Expectations
3 year old children *are* active.
They have a lot of energy. They get very busy and excited. Teaching them appropriate behavior takes time and a lot of patience. Talk with your doctor about appropriate expectations for this age. Most kids can only focus on an activity for a few minutes. Positive reinforcement can help her learn the important rules.
