My husband and I are completely at our wits end with our 3.5 yr old DS. From the second he wakes to the second he goes to sleep everything is a huge fight with him. If we ask him anything eg. Breakfast this morning - what would you like? After asking 6 times, he answers spaghetti on toast. I make it for him then 2hrs later he still hasn't taken a bite. When asking him why he hasn't eaten it becomes a massive temper tantrum because he just wants to play, not talk or eat.
We have an au pair that looks after him and DD during the day as I have a family day care so I look after 4 children downstairs in the daycare. DS and DD spend a lot of time in the daycare also with the au pair joining in our activities.
We have tried timeouts, taking things off him, talking to him and nothing and I mean nothing works.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what we can do to try to help him through this? Any and I mean ANY ideas at all would be greatly appreciated as my husband and I have run out completely.
