Ds is throwing tantrums quite often for example he has been opening the freezer and pulling food out for a while. Each time I say no and take him elsewhere but he will go back and do it over and over. I have even said no and tapped his hand and that doesn't phase him at all.
When I pull him away sometimes he just cries and cries like its the worst thing ever.
He doesn't eat his dinner like he used to. It takes over an hour to get his bowl finished. I have made a variety of foods so its not like in forcing something he doesn't like to eat.
In the past just to get something in his tummy before bed we have given fruit so makes me think we ruined dinner time so he may think if he cries he will just get his fruit.
What do I do to discipline him? Do you discipline at this age? I feel so bad when he gets upset and just want to run and comfort him but I need him to know what he is doing is wrong I want to try and nip this behaviour in the bud.
This is our first child so tell me if this is just normal and you can't stop it.! Have no idea.. Thanks!
