Is this normal......

My 10 month old, screams when I put him in his chair, he throws a fit when I try to change his diaper or dress him. The other day he was putting a shoe in his mouth and I took it from him, he balled up his fists, shook them, turned red in the face and started screaming. Is this normal at 10 months? Its like the terrible 2s come early!

my kids go through stages of that. it's just them trying to be independant and do what they want when they want.  i dont go for it and they get a "time out" i set them down and they cry or whatever when they are donei put them back in the chair (or whatever we was doing) just be consistant in whatever you do

How do I time out a 10 month old? Stick him in his playpen?

Well the problem is that he is so mobile that I cant just leave him. For instance, he was sitting on the floor while trying to chew on his shoe. I took the shoe away, he threw a fit but then went on about his way. Is this something they grow out of? I dont want him thinking his behavior is ok....

at 10 months he doesnt have the words to express how he feels. All he can do is ball his fists and cry to show you hes upset. Once he starts becoming verbal, sometimes it doesnt get any better my almost 3 yr old still throws fits but hes old enough to know better, he gets sent to his room to finish his fit, and once hes finished he can return to whatever he is doing. My mom told me to put ds in the crib when he would act like that at a young age, but only for a minute let him cry and then once the minute was up even tho he didnt understand camly explain to him you cant throw fits like that I understand you are upset and you cant express yourself yet, but you dont have to throw a fit to get what you want.

My SIL sends them my nephews to their rooms and makes them sit on their bed.  Remember, now a days kids have tons of toys in their rooms and just tend to go and play.  so you might want to do a corner or something along those lines when he's older.  My 18 month old nephew gets sent to his room or is put in his play pen until he calms down, which can take a while at times, she also does the old fashion single slap on the bootie as well to get their attention.  Sometimes they just need an attitude adjustment.
