Ds just turned 2 3 weeks ago and is already chest deep in the terrible 2's. He went from being able to play by himself and wanting help, to clinging to my leg all day long and full out refuseing to even take the cup of juice he was begging for 2 seconds ago.
We have only been up for 45 mins and this is what has happened so far. He threw a tantrum crying and hanging on my leg because he was ready to eat and I still had to make breakfast. It got so bad that the 5 mins it took me to whip of the cream of wheat ended with him in time out. Then after his very full 2nd bowl he started crying because I told him it was all gone. I just ignored him and went to use the restroom. He followed me in trying to shove and pull me of the toilet. He's only calm now because we are sitting together on the couch, watching Cars.
I wish I could say it was just cuse he is tired but the last week has been like this:(
I'm going to loose my mind if he keeps this up. In the 2 years of his life I have never felt so badly a need to run away from him and hide.
How do I get him through this, I know it's normal but geesh!

Say as calm as you can. Make it clear what is acceptable and what is not. Ignore the tantrums and tell him when he calms down you can talk/listen. I had to ignore my sons tantrums to get through them. Have plenty of one on one time with him and praise all the time whenever he does things right. Plus make him your helper for any task - like helping with breakfast (just one example). It goes a long way in minimizing stress because it makes him feel like he is helping and is a distraction for him. GL!!
