Hello. I am new to this group and I need help, bad! I am 7 months pregnant and my 28 month old is driving me insane!!!!
He wakes up most mornings crying, he wont even get out of his bed. He is just mad, at what i dont know. I go in his room to get him out and he starts screaming. Usually its because I am here at home and not daddy. He is a very big daddies boy. So then after he gets over that fit in the morning, we go throw the whole day with him just screaming at everything! Half the time I dont even know why he is mad. Sometimes he throws a fit b/c the toy hes playing with isnt doing what he wants it to do. Sometimes its over littlest things like me not letting him put the top on his sippy cup(god forbid i forgot!)....Anyway its just over everything.
He will throw himself in the floor and kick and stretch his body out and just SCREAM bloody murder. I try to talk to him and he screams "NO" at me. Thats usually when i put him in his room to be alone. After awhile he will come out, but within 10 mins he is mad at something else. He has no patience at all!!!!! He is being very independent and wanting to do everything for himself right now too. I am just at my wits end right now. I am so stressed b/c literally all day long he is like this. From screaming when he wakes to screaming when he goes to sleep at night. He just started this really bad like 1 month ago.
I have tried spanking, talking calmly, yelling, time-out, ignoring it, but nothing works!! Is this just a normal 2 year old thing?? This is my first so i dont know! HELP ME!!!
