Could really use some advice/words of wisdom/what have you!
My 3 1/2 year old son has developed quite the temper. When he gets that way there is no calming him down - he gets physical... hitting, scratching, kicking, and pulling my hair. I try to remain calm and not snap even though i'm at my wits end.
I have taken away TV and any toy that he throws at me, because he does that as well.
I have tried ignoring him when he gets in these fits (someone told me to try that). All he does is yell louder "Mom.. Mom TALK TO ME.. Hello?! I HATE YOU! I HATE THIS PLACE!"
Then, he gets all sweet just like that. And then right back to getting angry if he doesn't get his way.
Is this normal? What should I be doing differently? Is there anything to do about this or is this a phase that I must endure?
