I have twin girls who are about 24 months old. My baby A, Izzy, throws a fit when she doesn't get her way. And when she does she calls for my mom. It upsets me in different degrees. When I tell her she can't have a pencil, for example because she eats the graphite, she throws a fit and runs off to avoid me. When we have to leave places she enjoys she will throw a fit. I try and take my time with her and explain to her that we have to leave or that pencils are not for her mouth, it's like I've robbed her of something. Not only that, she'll call out for my mom. My mom to them is someone who will give them anything to stop them from crying, and that is something i or my their daddy disagree with.
Has your child ever acted this way? How did you compose yourself? What did you do? Did it help both you and your baby? Is your mom or in-law the run-to parent of your children?
