This is a wonderful stage as your three-year old preschooler will enjoy doing things with you, aim to please you more often and show affection so much more. Four-year olds are growing in self-esteem, independence and confidence. They tend to be more even-tempered and cooperative with parents, even though they will continue to stand up for what they want. However, children will vary in all these areas of development. The important thing is that development continues forward.
