    Today's okay, DH is home for 9 days although he's getting his vasectomy in the middle.

    We don't have family up here so we have to do this on our own.

    Hi Elle, my 15 month old is similar! The whining to be held part is what is driving me mad! Especially from around 4pm onwards he is really tough. Also doing the biting and hitting thing. My cats are coping it as well. He seems to be much more interested in 'stuff' rather than his toys. I can't find any of my plugs, he is currently running around with the flour sifter in one hand and a tin of salmon in the other!

    Hi is almost 16 months now and is definitely improving. Mainly afternoons are the challenge now. I find having some healthy snacks that he can self serve on the run is helpful, as we get only 5-10 mins in the high chair! Have you got one of these? http://www.gotoddler.com.au/Munchkin...ai_mk10121.htm

    Also going to the local oval and just letting him run it out.

    One of our cupboards I've set up full of safe unbreakable stuff that he is allowed to pull out all over the kitchen floor so I can redirect him there.

    Hopefully your DS will settle a bit soon as well

    I think I wrote the very same post about 4 mths ago... DD is now 20 mths and in the past 6 weeks seems to really have turned a corner. Our days are more and more filled with giggles and praise. We had the nightmare you speak of for about 4 mths. I don't know what the turning point was for us, I put her in family day care 1 day a week and she lives that. She is being disciplined by another adult whic h is great. She loves the interaction with other kids.

    Good luck, it's a hard time but it too will pass xx

    I'm not sure why you would pick that out of my entire post to comment on. If we see he is going to bite we remove him and tell him firmly "no bite" and if he has already bitten I pick him up and remove him from the situation completely. Again I'm confused as why you chose to comment on that and nothing else.

    In regards to the biting, DS only bit for a few weeks, not that that helps you today, but for us out of all the challenging behavior the biting passed the quickest
    Not having family around is tough
    We are in the same boat
    I hope things improve soon, and having hubby home for a little bit will hopefully help too
    I agree with a pp the more I get him
    doing physical activity the better.
    Hope you have a good day x

    I was just going to suggest other strategies to what u r using. Forget it. Considering I have a background in behaviour modification, I was going to suggest other techniques. However you are obviously feeling defensive. Hope u find a solution.

    Maybe you need a break and some "me time" have you got anyone who can take him for even just a few hrs so u can get some study in or so u can do something u enjoy without him? Having time out from him might give u a fresh perspective on things.

    Sorry, I read you dont live near family. Can your dh take them away from you before or after he has his operation? To give you some space. I know its not fixing the initial problem with ur ds but as I said above, it may calm u down and give u a fresh persepctive. U sound really stressed out maybe even speak to your gp or mchn about your feelings and ds behaviour.
    I hope its a phase and u get over this quickly.
