I had to lock DS (3,5) in his room (rope tied to his door and another in the hallway, he can open it a little and look out). He is tired from a morning in the park, a bad night and missing daddy. DP has been gone since Sunday, he's back early tomorrow morning.
So we had lunch and DS knows its resttime after lunch. Would not budge, no coaxing, reading, cuddling, 123, nothing. He started hitting me with one of those bubble swords and his fists. I tried cuddling him in his room, singing, being silent. He is beside himself. I hate doing this to him, but he was out of control. He was going to hurt me or DD (4mths)
Do I sit with him until he calms down? Do I wait for him to pass out behind the door?? I reckon its a phase, but in the meantime how do you deal with these mega tantrums???
