My DS stayed overnight with my parents last night. This normally only happens if we have a wedding or something. Mum said she felt we needed a break. I'm getting over glandular fever and we really are being pushed to our limits with DS. We so needed a break.
Anyway when I spoke to mum this morning she told me that DS is a very high energy and rather demanding little man. I can't tell you how reassuring it was for us to hear this. We constantly go between, are we not coping because we're not coping or is this kid full on. Daycare has also mentioned that he is high energy and throws huge tantrums - I'd say they're flippin cosmic! They've also told us he is probably the most full on child there.
Is there anyone else out there who has a 2 yo kid with an epic temper? Throws obscene tantrums? He hits, screams etc every. Single. Time. He doesn't get his own way. He rarely sleeps through and my parents couldn't get him to bed until 11pm last night, he woke twice and was up at 6.30am.
If so how are you putting boundaries in place? What techniques do you use? How do you tame the beast?
