My 3 year old almost 4 is getting me very fustrated. Its the start of the year and we already gone through 2 tantrums. The first one was because he wanted to watch a movie and his daddy said no after the news. He started to cry then scream then kicking. So i took him outside to calm him down it gets even worst so i tell him i am leavin him there till he stop. He didnt stop but just continue.
The 2 tantrum came after we came back fr watching fireworks. He had a elastic band in his mouth so i took it away. And he starts up again. I wanted to shake him cuz i had been putting up with this for awhile. He jus cries for everything. When i give him food and he doesnt want it which is almost every day, when its time to bathe, when its time to brush his teeth, when its time to sleep, everything... is something wrong with him? Its making me really fustrated and miserable.

Both my sons stick to me like glue. Anywhere i am when i fall asleep they find me so most time i wake up cramp up and miserable. I am at a point where i feel mess up

I agree with ignoring the tantrums. Put dad incharge of the kids for a while and do something, even if it's just a shower and a nap. *hugs we've been there =)

I am going to tell you staight up! My two year old daughter is the same way. It is hard and I find myself either screaming or caving a lot these days! It makes me feel terrible at times. But this is a phase! It is tought but you will get through it! Try time outs or trying to distract him. Simply talking to him may help at times but sometimes nothing makes it better!

Yea this is a tough age. My grandmother always said 'you just gotta be mean' (not realy mean but say no). It is hard though, i try to be 'mean' everyday! LOL Good Luck!

Oh gosh hugs!!! I know that overwhelming feeling we ALL have at one point or another felt that way.

With the tantrums what worked for dd was to put her in a time out mat/chair/corner and make her sit there unroll she was done with her tantrum even if it took two hours we had to stand our ground. It took a LOT of patience at first but eventually she got the point that the tantrum would get her no where. Now 2 minuates in timeout does the trick. U just have to stay consistent.
