This kid is so bad. I am the same one that has write the previous posts about not bringing diapers and wipes and all that. Well the kids are 20 months and 3 years and he doesn't like me I don't think because I make him sit on the couch and I don't think he gets disipline at home. His mom left this morning and he started screaming after she left I tried comferting him and he hit me and then he started banging on our glass door and tried hitting me again so I made him sit down for a few because he hit me. He is fine with everyone else though the neighbor and my DH, but they can't be over here all the time then me he screams the whole day and I think it is because I disipline him. Today he ran over his brother with a baby doll stroller so I took it he threw a fit and then he wants drink after drink after drink he wont drink water so when I tell him in a little while you can have more he startes screaming.

Make sure when you are talking to him that you are looking him directly in the eye.
If he throws the toys, remain calm and say "uh oh, looks like you don't want to play with these toys today and I will put them up until you want to play nicely with them." Then do it and go about your business.
If he is crying because he misses his mom or is angry, aknowledge his anger, lonliness or frustration by asking him about it "Are you mad?" , Besides helping him communicate it, you are acknowledging his feelings which may help relieve some of the frustration.
See some books on general discipline and time-out which will help you http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html
