My 1 year old was misbehaving so I sent him to bed without dinner
Apparently a lot of people have trouble with reading comprehension. (1) NOT PUNISHMENT. (2) I did not refuse to feed him. I attempted multiple times to feed him. He refused. I took him out, changed his clothes and diaper and tried again. I tried feeding him on my lap. He refused. (3) I gave him extra milk and sat and cuddled with him for awhile. I did not neglect him. (4) We put him to bed, he fell asleep instantly and slept through the night for 12 hours. (5) this was very unusual behavior for him (6) he is not teething--he has all of his teeth and I don't expect the 2 year molars would be coming in this early (7) a lot of women on here are so insecure in their own parenting that they need to criticize other parents without actually reading the text--yes, the title was misleading; it was designed for people to click on it and come in
I guess posting about a bad day looking for other moms who have been there or might have words of encouragement is not possible around here. People prefer to judge and attack including calling me incredibly offensive names and telling me I'm a shitty parent who needs parenting classes. Look in the mirror people.
Yesterday my 14 month old was being exceptionally bratty. He started the day by throwing a full blown temper tantrum kicking and screaming and hitting his fists on the floor. By evening he wasn't much better. He fought me leaving daycare, didn't want to get in his carseat to go home, tried to run away and refused to listen when we were home. He arched his back and refused to go in the high chair. He swatted his spoon away and wouldn't eat his cottage cheese (usually a favorite). He threw his banana on the floor without even taking a bite (again, usually a favorite). He kept kicking us and screaming, so we put him to bed without him having any dinner.
I hope today is easier.
