I took my son to the Doctor this morning and he apparently does not like to be there - we got in the backroom and he started to cry, handed me my purse and pointed to the door and said Go - mind you, he's 18 months old - I told him we had to stay and he threw himself on the floor and screamed and kicked, I tried showing him a book, talking to him, picking him up and holding him on my lap only to fail at every attempt. we then had to go upstairs to get blood drawn and because we weren't heading towards the car -he did the same thing. threw himself on the floor kicking and screaming. He doesn't at this age understand wait, hold on or simple explanations. I simply had to let him throw his fit in every area til we left. What is the "correct" way to handle this situation?? my husband wants to start taking him and I KNOW He will freak and take max home without any tests done or exams done when they are needed.
