My son is going to be 2 in march. I'm pretty nervous for the terrible 2s , because I'm hoping he can't get any worse. My son is bad. My fiancé says it. His dad says it. His grandmother has 7 grandchildren, my son being 2nd youngest, even says he's the worse of them all.
He cries everywhere he goes. He's destructive. Whines over everything. Never ever listens when I say no. Hits people. Throws crazy tantrums when he doesn't get his way. I can go on and on. He's just a crazy bad baby. :( he's so handsome though lol. I can't spank him. I fel bad afterwards, and I don't want him to hate me!! :(
I don't know what to do anymore. He stresses me out! I don't want to lash out one day. Sometimes I want to just scream!!! His dad is very helpful. He takes him for 3-4 days, so I can rest, work, and go to shool. But when I have him, I feel like I'm going to have a nervous break down.
What can I do?
I'm a 20 year old mom, if that matters.

Is he bored? Also is he frustrated because he has trouble communicating? This is a hard age because they understand what they want and need but don't always have the skills to get it across to anyone else. Reward him for doing the right thing. Pick your battles find a few things and correct him immediately when he misbehaves.

YOU ARE his Problem &why he is acting the way he is. Spend more time with him instead of dumping him off & be his Mother. He has no consistency in his life. He wants his Mother & needs a routine. He needs comforting & to feel safe. You better change your ways now or else he will become an even bigger problem & ONLY YOU are to blame. Kids are mirrors of their environment. Sorry but the truth hurts.
