My son is 15 months he isnt spoiled and hes a jolly little guy but a few weeks ago he started these bad tantrums, he'll get mad throw himself down , head butt, kick, slap, hit, or grab and scream and cry real tears. I tried calming him, soothing him, telling him its and hes not snacking to much or anything) shouldnot nice to hit..kick ...etc. and I tried time outs, even a slap and the bottom which I do not like but nothing else works. I treid to see if it was bordom, hunger, teething, nothing works. he doesnt have much of an apitite( the doc says its normal but I know its not when I can't get him to eat one meal a day besides snacking but not overly) should I take him to a therapist?Answer Question

Your son is in the "terrible two's" stage. Do not give him anything when he is acting this way. Don't soothe him or talk gently with him. All of this will only encourage him to continue this behavior and you do NOT want to do that! Ignore him and tell him sternly that you will not give him attention until he behaves. As for the eating: offer him meals and snacks at the usual times. He will eat when he is hungry. Don't give in to him or he will rule you and that is a dangerous place to be. Just when you think that this is bad - just wait. The "horrible threes" are next! Hang in there mama!
