My two year old is VERY persistent.. i mean it is aweful.. if he wants something he will yell and yell and yell about it and i cannot take his mind off it at all.. My problem is.. i am a very nervous person and sometimes i can be calm with him when he gets like this and sometimes if im having a bad day i end up being very loud and short with him and it's killing me cause i dont want to be mean to him and i know its just making his persistance worse along with the yelling, but how can i learn to control myself better.. i use to smoke and that was my release, i would go outside and smoke on my bad days when he would get like this.. but now thats gone.. any suggestions.. i have tried getting down and making eye contact and explaing why he cannot have it, but he will not look at me, even if i hold his face, he moves his eyes.. and keeps yelling for whatever it is that he wants..
