My son gets frusterated so easily...

If he can't figure out something right away he throws a big fit and throws his head back, to the point he throws it on the ground .... I'm scared he is really going to hurt himself... what can I do to stop this?

  • It is part of the learning process. The best you can do is to watch for signs of frustration and try to help him thru this.

    He is at the age where he knows what he wants but may not be able to verbalize or act upon it.

  • Yea...when my DS gets frustrated I take him by the hands and look at him and say, "it's ok mommy will help you..we can do this together." He does not do it allot because I think he has learned to ask me before he gets to that point...just help him feel capable yet help him...
