I have 4 kids 7,5,2,9mo. My eldest was a professional tantrum thrower. She would do the kickin screamin throwin tantrum. No matter what I said even softly speaking or yelling worked.

Thanks for replying I know this is pretty normal so I'm not too worried but I figure there are 12 feet in this house. That's alot of socks to pick up!
woooh That makes me feel better. Thanks for sharing everybody. I'm glad I came out of the epidural closet!
Hi I love this board and am a fairly naturally parenting mother. 4 mostly clothed diapers kiddos, cosleeping, babywearing, extended breastfed, gently discipline, etc. However I had an epidural with all 4. I tried not to but i must be a wuss. I actually had the epidural with the first and it didn't work. So technically it was natural.
