So, I know, terrible 2's. I get it, but i still dont know what to do!
My son has become spoiled (he was not in my care for the past 7 months), and doest listen to me. He throws tantrums when he doesnt get his way. On the contrary he can be VERY good, and most of the time he is. But when it rains it pours!! Example: We go food shopping in the morning, he wants candy, I say no. He yells, screams, pushes, quite an embarrassng scene. Its been suggested that I stop my trip and just go home, but if i did that id never be able to shop bc it happens all the time, and for the meantime im raising my son alone. How can I get him to cooperate without losing my cool?? Help....
I'm a single mother my self and my son throws tantrums also, but everybody disciplines differently. He is only two so yes he's going to yell and scream when he doesn't get his way. The walking out of the store idea actually will work if it's consistent. He will stop eventually if he knows that he wont get what he wants but if you do it one day and not the next then he wont understand that if he yells he wont get his way. CONSISTENCY when disciplining is key.
