What would you do? How do I stop this screaming before it becomes a habit?
Sleepy mama to Colin Theodore 8-12-08 and Trevor Arthur 7-17-12.
I'm glad you posted. My DS is a little younger than yours and I'm seeing his tantrums for the first time (I am a teacher and this is our first week together full time since last summer). I can so relate!
SSH- Do you have any recommendations for a good book about toddlers?? All I've read is "Happiest Toddler on the Block," which was *eh*.
I'm a counselor, so I do the empathy thing naturally anyway. It's when I give empathy and DS's response is to hit me or rage even more that I get stumped.
Also- how to deal when you CAN'T give them what they want right away. With the OP- her hands were full with groceries, then the tomatoes hadn't been cleaned. With my DS- we had the same tantrum with grapes on Monday. He wanted them NOW, but we had just walked in from the store. Also, yesterday when he wanted in the house NOW but we had toys all over our driveway (and the neighbor's driveway).
*sigh* Nothing like a 2-year old to make you feel completely incompetent.
