  • tell him he did something wrong, and it made you upset but it doesn't mean you don't love him. you'll always love him no matter what, etc.

  • Like xmama_bellax said, I hate you! means I'm doing my job. My 4 year old does the same thing when she's in trouble and has to do something she doesn't want to do, like go to her room for being in trouble.

  • My three year old did this with me. I was given a book called 'Have a New Kid By Friday' that had a lot of helpful tips on how to handle outbursts like that and other problems. I used the methods and my little girls whole attitude changed for the better. I'm not sure who wrote it, but it helped me out a lot.
