He just turned 2 a couple of months ago. He's a smart and healthy kid. But lately his behavior has been getting on my nerves. I have posted a couple of questions in the past about his tantrums but he's turning into a little monster! People keep telling me it's just a phase, it'll pass soon, but honestly... It's getting worse! :(
If we don't listen to him i.e. don't do what he wants us to do he starts crying at the top of his lung. And past this week his vocal cords have really opened up. He's brawling at top of his lungs as if God forbid someone has died! DH was in the yard the other day and we on the 3rd floor (we live in a townhouse), and he started crying because he didn't wanted to get out of the bathtub although I let him play in there for 25 mins and we had to get ready to go somewhere. DH was like, "what did you do? Beat the crap out of him?" I didn't even touch him!! I just ignored his bloodcurdling shrieks and put clothes on him.
We have tried putting him in another room and letting him cry while we ignored him but he goes on and on forever! We try distracting him with something else but that doesn't work either. He sreams for good 20-25 mins, by the time he's done, he almost loses his voice and I'm having a nervous break down.
Please please please tell me what should I do? I have seen kids, but mine is by far the most disobedient. We do listen to him, play with him, give him attention, let him play by himself, with other kids. We try not to give in to all his demands. What am I doing wrong? Yesterday DH found me in the laundry room, crying!
I'm seriously losing my mind!

if you've tried everything- as suggested by super nanny- how do you feel about corporal punishment?
