I took a job as a preschool teacher. And my oldest is in the 2 yr old room, so there is just a divider between my room and his. He is pretty much wonderful there. The boy I would love him to be at home. But at home .... he is the master fit thrower. I am talking within minutes of him waking sometimes. He is literally pissed off about the cup I put his juice in, the juice we have to drink, too much in his cup, etc. Get what I'm saying. He screams like a maniac LOL I have to get ready for work so I obviously ignore him. Then in the evening it's same thing. Fits over what bowl he got at dinner, that it's too much, not enough, not warm enough, too hot. I know it's a control thing.
Here's the other part. His dad is military and a pilot, so gone for days to weeks at a time. Been this way our children's entire life. We know it doesn't help, but it is what it is. Our son also comes from a long line of head strong indivuals ... my husband says, You're a bitch and I'm a dick, why are you suprised that he wants control.
How long will it last?? LOL Another year? Just in time for our other son, who is exactly a year younger, to pick up this crazy behavior. We ignore it, remain calm, his fits can and have lasted over a half hour. Which to me is a bit long. 15 minutes, but a half hour???
Any help. Any one been there?
