My son is 18 months, so smart and so so well behaved and has fantastic manners. He has started having tantrums which I know is normal but how do you handle them? For example, he took my phone off the coffee table so I took it from him and said thank you.. He then screamed, his whole body shook and he sat on the floor and just cried. He's done this a handful of times. Obviously I know not to give him what he wants so I wouldn't dare give him the phone to calm him down. Should I pick him up and console him? Should I walk away and ignore him? What do you moms do?
Also- he will not play by myself, he always wants me sitting in the room with him.. Even if I'm not playing with him he still wants me there. Any suggestions on how to break that and have him learn to play on his own? Not sure that this matters regarding these two questions but I am a stay at home mom.
Thanks in advance!
