So my oldest is days shy of 2. His tantrums have increasingly gotten worse. It starts within minutes of waking lately. Dad bought popsicles the other day, I never got them before. I made popsicles out of yogurt, fruit and juice. Now he wants one first thing. Hubby said he is associating mine as well as the sugar ones to the same thing, because he always starts his morning with the yogurt ones. Obviously he knows the difference because when I give him a healthy one he throws it across the room and throws a royal fit for the others. So we threw them away this morning. Of course the fits go on all day, mainly when he can't have what he wants or he doesn't get something that split second. He is my son, no patience, and I acted the same way. Plus my hubby and I aren't quiet people, we're a lively couple. But I find myself screaming and making the situation worse sometimes. If I am calm I just ignore him and sit him in time out...
