My 4 yo has been having some serious tantrums, really digging in his heels about things, you ask him to do something or not do something and he does the complete opposite, he eats 4 bites and he is off and running then either melts downs down (cause he needs to eat) or asks for treats, then melts down when i say no. Dinner is the biggest issue. He looks at everything I make and says he doesn't want that (even though he has loved it in the past). I know he is trying to establish independence. He is also the youngest and now his brother is home all day, everyday due to summer break so I think he is missing all of our one on one time. Even though I know that, I'm just at my wits end about it because it is really taking its toll on the family.
