    Does he have teeth coming through or does he just crack it over the littlest thing? My ds turned evil at 18 months and still a little bit evil but he now has all his teeth and only cracks it if I dont give him something he wants. He will be 2 in 2 weeks

    I can't anything coming through but that's not to say they are trying to erupt. He just has been whinging and throwing full on tantrums over the smallest things! Today we went shopping and he whinged and carried on the whole time, nothing I did seemed to settle him down.

    Yes my DS goes through these moments too and started at about 18 months. One day he'll be an angel, next day a total terrorist throwing tantrums all day long over nothing! He's 2 in a couple of weeks. I hope it ends soon

    Default Sudden behavior problems

    I have noticed that if I leave DS 22 months old with his nana for a day the rest of the day and the second day he will become a little devil! Tantrums over nothing! Whinging about anything and everything! It all started a few months ago.

    Default Sudden behavior problems

    At this age just distractions. I hide away all things that might trigger tantrums. Like biscuits in the mornings, he will chuck a huge tanty if he sees it in the morning an won't have breakfast. Blender, because he wants smoothies etc. If he is upset he would run around the house bang on things, I usually let him do his round then try to talk to him after he has calmed down. They can't understand anything you say when they are upset. So I usually wait. If it's a tanty that goes on and on or if we are out I just use distractions. At this age they don't really understand time outs and he doesn't care really if I take his toy away. But I have noticed also that if I keep my cool it's easier and faster to calm him down too. I also offer a lot of cuddles.

    Some kids do understand time ours at that age unfortunately... My DSD would be told to get out of the kitchen by DP and would go and put herself in time out. Her mother used them and it made things difficult when trying to just warn her not to do something... She would cry and put herself in the corner and either DP or I had to explain she wasn't in trouble, but she needed reminding (if any of that made sense). All I'm saying is be careful with the time out method, and make sure they understand a warning and getting in trouble...
