My 27 month old son wants nothing to do with me. From changing him to reading him stories, to cleaning and taking out the trash, he wants my boyfriend (his dad) to do it, and when I try to, he throws tantrums to the point of injuring himself. Now, he won't eat and as of 2 nights ago, will ot sleep. He just screamed for 3 hours - to the point that his dad ecided to take him to the ER. Luckilly, he fell asleep on his dad's lap before we got out the door. We realized the crib was useless last night and tonight we put a new fun big boy bed in his room..he threw the biggest fit I'd ever seen. We are at a lost. I can't stop crying or shake the feeling that something is wrong. Between this and the way he is in cerain situations, I feel like he isn't a normal toddler. When is it time to call the doctor?
Our lives have become a prison, and the way he has been behaving is tearing our family apart at the seams. Any advice, shared experiences or resources would be GREATLY appreciated. (to illustrate a point, I am typing this on a smartphone because he will scream if he hears or sees me.) I'm not a monster, and he is a good kid. What is wrong?
