My son is 2 1/2 and he has his tantrums but lately he has been overreacting like when i tell him to go to bed he screams when lights go out saying i stole his eyes, when we eat i take his toys away so he can eat if not hes distracted and he wants to slam his head down in the table and scream hysterically. And in public hes gotten terrible we cant tell him anything he wont like without him screaming that we are hurting him and for my husband and i to leave him alne, my husband does spank him on his bottom and he wears diapers so it really doesnt hurt i try to talk and reason beacuse i dont like to spank,but nothing is working he punched me to the back of the head when i was talking to my husband over phone awhile ago, my husband asked about him i said he refuses to go to bed and next thing i knew i got smaked from behind, i need advice. I hope we resolve this son because im pregnant and due on may 3 and do not want him to hurt his baby sister during his tantrums.Answer Question

it sounds like he's crying out for attention, all kids find some way to do it, and acting out always gets the attention. let him throw his tantrums and leave him alone while he does it. stop giving any type of attention for negative behavior. take him to his room and let him cry it out, but no more than that. if you stop responding to it, he'll stop doing it. a swat in public is good, then stick him in his stroller, strapped in, and let him scream. also, trying to talk it out with a 2 1/2 year old is pointless, he is too young to get what you are saying, ya know? hang in there, and remember he is 2.

Wow...that needs to be corrected now before he gets older. Otherwise he will continue to think that this type of behavior is acceptable from him. I had a similar problem with my son and he was just getting worse by the day. He would really act out in public--he figured out that we were less likely to discipline him in public and that was extremely embarrasing! There is a parenting course online that gives somee very useful information. I tried a few with my son and they worked like a charm. If you go to this website they offer free audio on parenting during the terrible twos stages and correcting the childs behavior. It gives a lot of useful tips to keep you sane and in control too. I hope this helps. http://6748byvnxx8w0q1p9oybn5fcwv.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=CFEMUM
